/etc/initrunlvl is not used anymore. If you want to find out the
runlevel, use the "runlevel" command. It prints out the previous
and current runlevel seperated by a space. In addition the /etc/init.d/rc
script sets the runlevel for you in the environment variable $runlevel.

Anyway, if you want xdm just to startup in runlevel 4, only
install the startup links in /etc/rc4.d and not in the other
rc?.d directories - that will take care of it.
