I have made progress on apt-get and othe info.

I installed the system from Knoppix-3.4, it is 2.6.5 kernel

Is there a way to boot the machine to run level 3 only (no kdm etc.),
in Mandrake I used to use (in /etc/inittab)


at top and it does not work the same way..

The problem is that the runlevels 2,3,4 and 5 are identical by default.
To make this work, you need to remove the symlink to the kdm script
from some runlevel directory. To have runlevel 3 without kdm, do this:

rm /etc/rc3.d/???kdm

After that, booting into runlevel 3 will not load XFree (if you use kdm
as your login manager).

Please try

update-rc.d kdm remove

try the manpage for the same for more options.
