To switch a buffer's mode to FOO-mode, type M-x FOO-mode. To make it
work automatically based on the file extension, add this to your
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.cs\\'" . java-mode))
By the way, you might check out viper, the vi emulation package for
Emacs. I know it exists in FSF Emacs, and I assume it does in XEmacs,
too. I know some ex-vi'ers who swear by it.
