Tom was kind enough to walk me through configuring my laptop to
(optionally) use gvim (vim-gnome) when entering text while in firefox.
I'm now at home trying to configure my belmont machine which  is NOT
running gnome! I've got fluxbox here. So the question becomes, which
version of vim do I want to download. 
Can you help, Tom?
Is Vimperator, that Riley mentions, what I want?
