Re: Debian install to init 3?

I really did not get what you want just a short explanation of run levels
0 shutdown
1 single user maintenance mode
3 multi user CLI mode
5 multi user X mode "this one is 4 in SLACK"
6 reboot

If you want your system to start into one of the levels above..edit
/etc/inittab accordingly..a warning ..do not use  0 or 6 since this
will either shutdown or restart your system once it is loaded.

Once in X, do Ctrl-Alt F(1-6).  Login and do the update-upgrade.  Go
back to X by hitting F7.


This sentence contradicts itself -- no actually it doesn't.
