I do not have my Linux machine here.  Do a "yum search vim".  You want to do
a "Yum install vim-enhanced-blah-blah-blah".  Obviously the search will tell
you what to fill in for the blah blah blah.  For some reason Redhat ships a
very striped down version of vim.  What is vim without the bells and
whistles?  Go figure.

If your "yum search vim" only turns up the two it gave you before it gave
you before you can always go to vim.org, get the latest tarball, and install
vim from source.  It is a very easy install.
