Yesterday I installed XFree86 on this thing. At the beginning of the 
install I recall being offered an option to start something like  xfs on 
boot. It was in yellow. Thinking that the reference may have had 
something to do with booting directly into X without my having to invoke 
it with the command startx, I entered "n" and went on.  At boot, I now 
have the line "Stopping xfs:  not running  [ WARN  ]  right after 
"INIT:  entering run level 3". Huh? What in heavens name is this anyway? 
Is this a reference to the XFS file system?  I disabled XFS in the 
kernel and want nothing to do with it.  Does X start the XFS file system 
at boot or something? I've never seen this before and don't know what's 
at issue. Can someone help?
