well init 2 is multi-user without network support as opposed to
init 3 which is multi-user with network support...i just assumed yours said 3....but in any case both are for booting to the CLI, as opposed to init 5 which is full multi-user with network support and X11....
so just change that :
id:2:initdefault:
to read :
id:5:initdefault:

oh and one more thing....keep your posts in the threads you have existing about the same problems....we were just discussing this in your other thread and then you came and made a new one (which was unnecessary) ...
