Is it possible to start there and to get to a gdm login by only using
the command "service <foo> start"[0] and making this persistent by using
"chkconfig <foo> on"[0]? I doubt it, as editing /boot/grub/grub.conf does
not happen using this interface, which is where init=/bin/sh is set.
Using the command "service <foo> start" is what I meant by starting
other services as this is the usual interface for this on Fedora.
