run level 2 is normal for debian/ubuntu, i believe single is run level
1.  I would unmount the disks i would dd to make sure nothing is writing
to the partition.   you cant unmount / (root) unless youre running off
another disk (knoppix), i personally just remount that one readonly
(probably not a good idea but i got away with it, i think its beacause
some of my boxes dont have cdroms).

i'm surprised also, i dont recall either way but i checked my
ubuntu/debian boxes they all are similar.  but /etc/rc1.d/ have a bunch
of K's in there plus a "S90single".
