change startup runlevel & exec boot loader


I installed fedora 10 without any display managers or desktops.

Once installed I then installed slim for my display manager and fluxbox for my desktop.
slim loads fluxbox fine so that's all working as it should.

now my problem is I need to switch to runlevel 5 (for x11) then start slim (display manager)

iv tried editing /etc/inittab to the below, but this just makes fedora sit on runlevel 1 until I switch myself, it also dose this using only the first line.

x:5:respawn:/usr/bin/slim >& /dev/null
anyone help me with this problem?
