There are two modes for hex editing in my GNU Emacs (version 21.3.1).

The first is a major mode, invoked by `M-x hexl-find-file'.

The second is `M-x hexl-mode' -- a minor mode -- that can be used while
visiting any file in an Emacs buffer.  This should work with any sort of
file you have already opened.  When you're done editing in hex, you can
always exit the hexl-minor-mode by typing `M-x hexl-mode-exit' (usually
bound to the key sequence `C-c C-c').

More details in your Emacs info manuals :-)
