How to modify xorg.conf from command line in rescue console (F7)



I am trying to install Fedora 7 in VirtualPC 2007 and I have gotten to
the first restart after the install has completed.
At this point one must boot the dVD in rescue mode in order to change
xorg.conf so that the default color depth is not 24 (can be anything
but 24 but this particular value is incompatible with VPC2007).

So I was adviced to do it this way, however they did not tell me *how*
one can edit a file in Linux....
Using more I can see that the file is set for 24 bit depth and I just
need to change that to 16 and I'm done.

(Forgot to say that I am a Windows user, completely green at Linux...)

Detailed instructions on how to start a command line editor for this
file would be appreciated as well as how to save and exit from it.
