Run level 3 is just a non-graphical boot.  Entering startx at the
command prompt brings up X.  But it seems the menus are different when
doing startx in run level 3 versus graphically booting (via gdm, I
think).

According to the man page for poweroff the -h option will gracefully
stop my drives during the shutdown process.  Now the question is how do
I edit the menus and menu properties (i.e., the command executed on a
menu choice) to give me the menu options I want and run the commands I
want when I select them.
