There are lots of handy things that can go into your .vimrc file. 
Basically anything you can do with a :set command can be included in the 
.vimrc file (without the colon) which will be applied every time you start 
vim.  Here's a snippet of mine below, comments start with double-quotes 
(hopefully word-wrap won't screw this up):

set nocompatible                "don't force compatibility with classic vi
set shiftwidth=4                "default indent width
set tabstop=4                   "default tab display width
set autoindent                  "maintain previous indent when starting new line
set nohlsearch                  "don't highlight search results
set backspace=indent,eol,start  "backspace over indent, end of line, start of insert
set showmatch                   "highlight closing brackets
set list listchars=tab:>-,trail:- "highlight hard tabs and trailing spaces
