hi list,

>>> ls -al `which vi`
>>> lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  3 Oct 26 11:51 /usr/bin/vi -> vim

what does this mean? that when I type "vi file.xy" in the terminal,  
then tha app. vim starts?

> Ok... are you running Vim in Terminal or are you using the  
> Aqua(ized?) version of Vim?

I tried both versions and it does not function. the FAQ here (see
  points me to this:

Your $PATH variable does not contain the directory in which the latex  
executable resides. See your system documentation on how to set the  
$PATH variable.

well, can anybody tell me how I can
a) find the location of the latex executable
b) set the $PATH variable
