I think he means:

$ runlevel

It tells you the current SysV runlevel you are running at.  If you come from a 
Red Hat/Mandrake background, Ubuntu's default runlevel of 2 is a bit 
confusing, since in those distros, runlevel 5 boots to the GUI and runlevel 3 
boots to the console.  I believe that in Kubuntu and Ubuntu, runlevels 2-5 
are all identical (0-6 are special just like in other distros).  The man 
pages for runlevel are probably more accurate than my memory, though.
