In the inittab of an openSUSE the runlevel S is not correspond identical
to the system initialization.  This because our policy points out that
no disks nor partitions or any other service should be activated by a
cold boot intio single user mode.  It had been very useful in past to do
it that way but introduced a lot of work to make a switch into any
other runlevel work well ;)

Hmmm ... if root pw is locked down the way out is a boot disk
only.  Why should such a broken system exist or in an other
way why should a sysadmin disable its own maintenance job?
We may speak about a large farm of clients *with* disk with
one of the clients having a disk crash.

The only problem might be the acctoff patch as our accton
around here behaves the old way.  We may use a cpp define
for this to switch it on or off.

As long those changes are warped by the appropiate cpp define
all went OK :)
