This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

*** Bug 6007 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Using the graphical installer to do a full install, if
both "use graphical login" and "customize X" are selected,
the resulting /etc/inittab incorrectly sets the default
runlevel to 3 (instead of the intended runlevel 5).  If the
"customize X" button is not selected during the install,
the installer correctly sets a default runlevel 5.

I checked the option to use graphical login during the
install, but my system was still set for runlevel 3.

*** Bug 6627 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Even though I selected the graphical login option during the
X configuration, the default run level in /etc/inittab was
set to 3, not 5.

This issue is resolved with the latest errata and boot images
