HP Mini 1000 Mi Linux Run Level 3

Aloha,
I have one of these netbooks coming to me this week and I need to have it boot into Run Level 3 for command line use.
Anyone know if the usual changing of the /etc/inittab will do that or is there something special with respect to this unit.
Would appreciate a how-to if there is one.
Thanks...

yes, you should change /etc/inittab file and change the runlevel

here in below example the current run level is 5


id:5:initdefault:

# System initialization.
si::sysinit:/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit

l0:0:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 0
l1:1:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 1
l2:2:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 2
l3:3:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 3
l4:4:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 4
l5:5:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 5
l6:6:wait:/etc/rc.d/rc 6

Thanks for the confirmation,

I'll Check the manual with the unit as to how to get root access and edit the file.

Is this a Red Hat /HP style of Linux, with Vi as the default editor?

hi,

it's depend on the installed distribution,

but mostly Linux distribution using vim editor,

as default, but the default editor is up to

you, if you like joe/vi/vim/emacs ...

you could install any os you want on it if you do not like the default one. there are some light weight distros out there that don't even include a gui by default.
