For the benefit of a perennial Newbie, I would welcome more details.
Specifically, given that runlevel 2 can be configured to automatically
load the console:
a) at what point do you issue the "init 3" command and when does it
b) is there any benefit in using "telinit 3" rather than "init 3"; and
c) how do these routines differ from using "startx" after booting
into the console?
