So why not open a terminal in SUSE and as root type init 3? I don't understand
this... The gentoo install is stupid at stage 1 and the only reason peopel do
it is for ego. Do you think that .... 2% speed increase maybe? Means anything
to a user? No.

And why did you send this to me off list, if I read and replied to you I'm
obviously on this list.

If you want to learn more of the "command line" then open a konsole and do it.
