The runlevels 2-5 are configured identically in Debian so it will not matter. I take it you want to boot to X with the Gnome login screen? If so then apt-get install gdm
once installed as root /etc/init.d/gdm start
will start X with the Gnome Display (login) manager running, now every time you boot your machine it will start graphically.
