All is well, if runlevel 3 is what you want.

Yeah, this just means that people can login. Otherwise only one user
(perhaps just root) can login.

If you modify the runlevels yourself, then 2-5 are all *identical*.
Which level means which is wholly up to you, the admin. If you don't
want X to start at boot time you have 2 choices :
1) remove the display manager, if you're not going to run it you
don't need it (but if you want to use it later, might as well
2) disable it;
#2 is done by removing the S99gdm link (if you have gdm) in /etc/rc?.d
where "?" refers to the run level. If you want to mimic a RH config,
go to /etc/rc2.d and remove the link there. If you want runlevel 3 to
have no X, go to /etc/rc3.d and remove the link.
I repeat : the runlevels have no distinct meaining except for what
*you* (the admin) give them.
If you hold to [Jesus'] teaching, you are really [Jesus'] disciples.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
