It all depends on /etc/inittab ... have a read. As far as
I recall debilian (and thus ubuntu) has an odd approach
there, even runlevel 2 has X (I may well be wrong, I usually
stay clean of these distros), try init 1 :}


Cheers,
Tink

Hmm, If your initab got f.eks defult runlevel 4 and you try Ctrl-Alt-Del, you just gets to the loginscreen. At least, thats what happens on both my computers.
