Not sure what you're doing by 'typing "3" at the prompt'.  Just to be
sure that you're doing what we expect - to boot into runlevel 3, I'd add
a 3 on the end of the kernel line.

You'd get to the point that you can see the stanza that GRUB is going to
use while booting, in the edit mode (by pressing the "e" key, I thought,
while in the GRUB boot menu screen).  Then you'd see something somewhat
*like* the following.

title Fedora Core (2.6.17-1.2142_FC4)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2142_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/
        initrd /initrd-2.6.17-1.2142_FC4.img

And you'd modify the kernel line to look like:

        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2142_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/ 3

Then you'd try and boot (the "b" key, if I recall correctly).

(Currently testing FC5, but still running FC4, if that's important.)
