Is there any way that I can set the Ubuntu 10.04 to Boot in Run Level

automatically in Run level 1).........

I can do it in Fedora by editing /etc/inittab
But in Ubuntu I couldn't find this file............

I have yet to understand why Ubuntu doesn't utilize it.

Because Ubuntu has transferred the functionality of "/etc/initab" to
"/etc/init/*", except for "initdefault" (AFAIK) most probably because
Ubuntu and Debian only use a default of runlevel 2.

Right, I was just openly wondering why? Isn't the use of /etc/inittab
supposed to be the universal standard? Just wondering if there was some
sort of benefit to the fork. Thanks, Ric
