After the base install, nano is installed in /usr/bin/nano by default. Unless something's mucked up with your installation, it should be there. (try typing 'which nano' to see if it's installed in another directory contained in your $PATH)

To edit your fstab file, simply type 'nano -w /etc/fstab'

try this
*boot of the install cd
*remount the paritions as in the install guide, and chroot again

you should have a working vi/nano now.. make your changes

*exit out of the chroot
*umount the partitions
*restart
