0=reboot, 1=single-user, 2=normal-but-no-NFS, 3=normal, 4=unused, 5=XDM,
6=halt.  At least that's from memory, and it may vary by distribution.
ICBW; check /etc/inittab.

So normally you boot into runlevel 3, if you don't use XDM.  Look for a
line "id:initdefault:3"  or similar.  Very bad things will happen if you
set initdefault to 0 or 6.

Yes.  As you'd (probably) like it to do if you switch into runlevel 1.
Normally, you want as few processes running as possible there.

They're not _required_, as obviously nothing's going to be running when
the machine's off, and it works now, without them.  But Samba may have
state that it doesn't have a chance to save, if it's killed by the OS
going down.

                    Logic is a systematic method of coming to
                      the wrong conclusion with confidence.
