Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Have you changed your /etc/inittab it should be set at run level 2, atleast that is what mine is set at.
No sir i didnt change /etc/inittab.
I have check it using safe mode and it goes like this
# inittab This file describes how the INIT process should set up
# the system in a certain run-level.
# Author: Miquel van Smoorenburg, <email@example.com>
# Modified dor RHS Linux by Marc Ewing and Donnie Barnes
# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by Mandriva Linux are:
# 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
# 1 - Single user mode
# 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
# 3 - Full multiuser mode
# 4 - unused
# 5 - X11
# 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
There is no default run level listed
I'll post mine in a few minutes Your default runlevel should be set to 3
Sir i already solved the problem.
my inittab file is set default as runlevel 0 that's why its halting or system shutdown.
Using safemode on mandriva entering single user.
i have look for the location or directory of /etc/initab
