Okay, here it it.

1. If you have run Abiword at least once, you will have a file called
   ~/.AbiSuite/AbiWord.Profile. Open it in an editor.

2. Add the following two tags inside the <AbiPreferences></AbiPreferences>


That should do the trick. I am using Abiword 1.0; the feature more or less
works though visual mode seems to be absent. If you have time, file bugs at
www.abisource.com about problems with vi mode. The feature is being
maintained, judging by the responses to bugs already filed.
