Yes, though you might want to set it to stop nfsfs just in case.

Linux always boots into exactly one runlevel. Runlevel S or 1 is single
user mode. This usually has no virtual terminals, is bare bones, and has
no password. Runlevel 3 is network/server. It has multiple terminals,
network, services. Runlevel 5 is X. It has multiple terminals, network,
services, and X windows. Which runlevel starts on reboot is controlled
by /etc/inittab, which also controls some of the things running in each
runlevel (see the man page for more.) You can switch runlevels as root
using the init command.

Exactly what ends up running is usually a combination of /etc/inittab ,
/etc/inetd.conf , and the /etc/rc.d/rc#.d/ folder.

YVW. You are very inquisitive and ask intelligent questions. :P
