* I think you at least missed something: runlevel 1 is a temporary one,
and automatically switches to S. I think you should never ask
'telinit S', but 'telinit 1'

* that's not complete either. As already mentionned, the manpage tells
about undocumented runlevels 7-9. It also poorly tells about those
AaBbCc I never really understood.

More about these ?
