Unfortunately, *BSDs don't have the concept of run-levels at all. They
have a rc file, and that loads whatever stuff you want it to load, based
on the rc.conf file (roughly ... things vary between the BSDs also).
The BSD way of doing things is called BSD style, and the GNU/Linux way of
doing things is called AT&T style.
In case you wanted to change to single user mode (that is why one might
type "init 1" in GNU/Linux), then type "boot -s" at the "boot>" prompt
that you get when you boot OpenBSD.

Hope that helps.
