What I'm trying to figure out is whether a normal boot with autostart of 
X turned off (as it is now) has video problems.  I suspect that changing 
inittab didn't really change the runlevel for some reason, and assuming 
that unchecking the box in XFdrake did this successfully, I'd like to 
know if a default boot still has the problem.

Leave safe boot out of it for now, as that clearly has problems of its own.
