I have not tried running the "rc" command but will give it a try.

I have tried running telinit from xterm and tty1 but it doesn't matter
what run level I am starting from, it does the same thing but to
differing degrees.  I have tried following man pages, info pages and
config files and everything seems to be set up correctly but it still
doesn't work like it should.  The system boots up just fine and even
reboots correctly.
