Question runlevel

Is there a way telling the system at which runlevel to run before it reads /etc/inittab?

yep..there is....

1. Press 'a' on the GRUB Splash Screen
2. then press 'spacebar'
3. now type the run-level number that you want to boot into..

If you are using LILO, then press Ctrl-x to for text mode lilo and then type

linux <run-level>
for boot LILO into runlevel 3 type

linux 3
