    Well, first off, it shouldn't be asking you to enter a level. You're doing an interactive startup, I suppose, then.

    Level 1 is shutdown, and Level 6 is reboot (or perhaps I reversed those).

    Also, can you say exactly what error you're getting? That will help tremendously.

    this is what the error is

    It says when i enter 3

    Enter level : 3
    INIT : entering level 3
    INIT : No more processes left in level 3

    Is this a problem that you've got directly after you have installed your Linux? Or have you had some kind of crash prior this error occurs? It sure looks like you do not have your filesystem in a good shape.
    Since you are not able to start any processes in any runlevel that you've tried.

    Enter level : 3
    INIT : entering level 3
    INIT : No more processes left in level 3
    That means that you do not have any registred services/deamons in your /etc/rc.d/rc3.d directory.
    1. Check your filesystem
    2. Check your installation
    3a. Re-install system if it was a new installation
    3b. Try to do a re-cover installation with rescue mode if you had a system crash
    4. Check that you have not been hacked, if yes, un-plugg, re-install!!!

    It's just my .05c guesses though

    Btw, as a side note, runlevel 1 is single user mode, which normaly is used when you do some major HW/driver updates where you do not want any system/user interaction when installing. And is also used by the system at startup to ensure HW-hal functionality, why I do suspect you do have a harddrive that is malfunctioning
