Virtual VIM

I’m having some trouble with virtual vim (that is when you hold down ‘v’ and select some text, and then copy or delete the text with ‘y’ or ‘d’ / ‘x’) on my dreamhost computer/account.

My problem is when I’m copying from another file, and into my “new file”, I can only copy 50 lines ! Never before on any linux machine have I had this problem, so I don’t have a clue how to fix this!

If you can either change your vim setup or show me how to edit my vimrc file, then it would be well appreciated!
