How do I clean up 2 lines that don't quite intersect. In Autocad I would fillet with a radius of 0 or use the Chamfer command.

Mapping Center Answer:

Without seeing the configuration of the two lines it’s hard to say for sure, but we have a Fillet tool on the Advanced Editing toolbar that essentially behaves similar to AutoCAD’s fillet tool.

That said, a fillet of 0 radius is effectively the same as snapping.  Thus, you could also use the Modify edit task - select the vertex of one feature, zoom in, and snap to the vertex of the other feature.

If you've got lots of these, you could try a geoprocessing solution with the Integrate tool.  You can just opt to use one input dataset (contrary to the illustration in the tool help).  The result is effectively doing a portion of the same work as the CLEAN command in Workstation ArcInfo did.
