Unfortunately...this has not worked for me.
Could be user error :-$  hmmm  What are the variables for the return values
for Runlevel?  And nevermind! lol  /me is learning to READ READ READ.  I
could have saved quite a bit of time.  My apologies.

info runlevel

Runlevel can be used in rc scripts as a substitute for the System-V who -r
command.  However, in newer version of init(8) this information is also
available in the environment variables RUNLEVEL and PREVLEVEL.

Thanks for the help.

I need somebody here to smack me everytime I ask a question that has a clear
answer in the info doc.  :-)
