Install the vim-rt package, then enable syntax highlighting in the config
file, /etc/vimrc.

To enable the syntax highlighting, remove the double-quotes at the
beginnings of the if statement and "syntax on" lines.

If your box now defaults to white foreground on black background you also
want to add "set background=dark" as the line before the "syntax on" line.
