But some distros, such as Debian have runlevels 2-5 the same at install. You have to individually change the programs booting for each runlevel using a tool like sysv-rc-conf.

vi /etc/inittab

The relavent section of a sample /etc/inittab file is as follows:

# Default runlevel. The runlevels used by RHS 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)
