You must have a display manager installed (e.g. xdm, gdm ,kdm, wdm, etc)
If you remove it (apt-get remove xdm), you will not be popped into X
Runlevel 2 is the debian standard. The init files are in /etc/init.d
(corresponding to RH's /etc/rc.d/init.d)

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
don't think so.
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?
