Currently, I get popped right into X.
I thought this could be contolled by setting the defalult run level
/etc/inittab  But I see nothing in there that looks likely.

In fact it claims the default is runlevel 2.  Or is runlevel 2 X.  I

In my redhat dealings it was possible to set default to runlevel 5
which force boot to bring up X.  setting runlevel 3 gave you a console

Where is this choice made on debian?

Run level 2 is standard, but if you've installed xdm or something of that
kind, then it will launch you strait into X, that's what' those packages do.
