Management said not to use inittab but rather grub.conf. Explains before why even when

id in inittab was 5, the runlevel would be 3.

But now, in grub.conf there is the 3 (as above) at the end of the kernel line (5 in inittab) and
it is coming up in level 5 after reboot. So which has precedence, inittab or grub.conf and

why is it coming up 5?

Yes but it still comes up in level 5
Try with : kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-55.ELsmp ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet /sbin/init 3
