I mean edit /etc/inittab and change the 3 to a 5 here:

# The default runlevel is defined here

This is the actual setting that determines which runlevel you box boot
If you have it set to runlevel 3 during install, your line will look like


To set it to boot to runlevel 5, make it look like this:


Or, make it obvious what runlevel you'll start at by putting your normal one
as the last character of your default Grub menu stanza (or all of them, or
different ones on different stanzas):

title ...
kernel...showopts splash=off vga=0x317 5

This way you'll know at each boot what you'll get, plus be able to easily
select another for each boot you .
