I'm using openSuse 10.3 Linux in VirtualBox,and I just installed the
text mode.
I use the command "shutdown now" to turn off the machine.
But the result is as the following:

linux-Kermit:~# shutdown now
The system message from root (tty1)(Mon Feb ......<the time> ):
INIT: Switching to runlevel: 1

Why the system goes to runlevel:1,but not shutdown?
Is "shutdown now" different from "init 1"?

Now I ususlly use "init 0" to turn off the machine,is it right or wrong?

Thank you!

From man shutdown...

"and runlevel 1 is used to put to system into a state where administrative
tasks can be performed; this is the default if neither the -h or -r
flag is given to shutdown."
