What the book means is that FreeBSD just does not distinguish various
runlevels like SysV does. There is only singleuser and multiuser with
BSD-stlye init, while SysV init has more (Singleuser, Multiuser with no
networking, Multiuser with Networking, X...).

Of course it's possible to run FreeBSD non-networked. :-)
