Run Levels

The runs levels given (1 = single, 3 = regular, 5 = Xwindow) are standard for redhat. Other Linux distros may be different... debian, for example, uses 2 as the default runlevel. IMHO, this is better, since init will default to 2 if there is no entry in inittab specifying a default. There's no much else to say... one more heads up... many other distros use /etc/init.d instead of /etc/rc.d/init.d ... on the latest version, RedHat symlinks init.d to rc.d/init.d, so you can save a few keystrokes.

That's it... I don't have anything else to say for now. We'll see how recitation goes.
