wavetel: Help files for most applications in DSL have been removed to save space for more applications. It is a necessary result of building the most complete system possible within 50mb.
There is almost always documentation available at the developers' websites, in this case vim.org. Please note that DSL's vim is a minimal build, so some documented features are not available.
There are also many places on the web that provide help with the basics of vim; a google search should get you some help quickly.
Press i to enter insert mode to type in the document.
Press Escape to go back to normal command mode.
To exit vim -> :q (in normal mode)
To save the current document and exit vim -> :wq
To quit without saving a modified document -> :q!
To save a document without quitting -> :w or :w filename
