Hello, Everybody.
    I installed LFS 3.3 version.
    I think It's working well run-level 3.
    I'd like to run my LFS machine in run-level 1.
    but when I run it in run-level 1, I always met following message. even
if I checked file system via fsck, e2fsck.

   Checking files systems...
    /dev/hda3 : clean, 26196/193152 files, 159927/385560 blocks.

Setting hostname to lfs

(or type Control-D for for normal startup ):
maybe I'm sure my LFS partion  didn't crashed. file systems is correct.
when I use fsck or e2fsck, I didn't get any error messages.
whenever I input Control-D,  "Give root password for maintenace (or type
contrl_D for normal startup )" message displayed again  on my console.

How can I solve this problem? is it possible to get rid of this message?

Thanks a lot.
Have a day.
