Hi Stephen,

Simply type "startx" to use gui in level 3. When you type "init 5" you start the gui, but you also switch to level 5 which is a different level that level 3. The different levels can be set up run different configurations such as programs that you want to start up i.e. different "services" at boot time.

Just remember "I want to start x so I startx"
