    # inittab This file describes how the INIT process should set up

    # Default runlevel. The runlevels used by Mandrake Linux are:
    # 0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
    # 1 - Single user mode
    # 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
    # 3 - Full multiuser mode
    # 4 - unused
    # 5 - X11
    # 6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
    #
    id:5:initdefault:

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

    Try changing initdefault to 3.

    Code:
    id&#58;3&#58;initdefault&#58;
