is runlevel 3 preferred to 5
i thought that runlevel 5 might be unnecessary for a remotely managed server (no monitor connected to box) and experimented with runlevel 3 for the first time. I quickly learned what chkconfig does, but am still bewildered why [root@computer root]$ reboot waits ~10 minutes before rebooting whereas is nearly instantaneous when runlevel=5. I didn' notice much difference in load with runlevel set to 3 or 5. Aside from a pretty screen with runlevel 5 and faster rebooting in my case, is there anything that implies that runlevel 3 is superior to 5?
thx if any ideas, - bp
