Of course not.  In order to make init level 5 do something you will need
to add some level 5 instructions to inittab.

Try man inittab and consider what you want to run instead of getty to
get KDM or GDM to run.  Then start looking at the symlinks in /etc/rc5.d
to decide what else you need starting and stopping.
