ok, i'm confused ... wouldn't the only available runlevel options on
the kernel line in /etc/grub.conf be precisely those for the "init"
command, and the ones that you could add manually while at the grub
menu early in the boot process?

according to "man init", that would include "1", "s" or "S", but i
don't see the word "single" anywhere there.  and i just tested that by
duplicating the default stanza in grub.conf, renaming the title, and
just adding "1" to the end of the kernel line.  selecting that option
from the boot-time grub menu takes me to single-user mode, just as i
expected.

unless i'm misreading the actual problem here.
