systemd runlevels

I recently installed Fedora 16 on a Dell Latitude laptop. The wireless needed a tweak, but it works great. Next, I like booting into what was once runlevel 3 and is now called multi-user.target. I followed the instructions to link the default.target to the /lib...../multi-user.target, but no joy. I found if you link it to /lib...../runlevel3.target it works fine. I can now boot up in "command line mode" Unfortunately, I can't get X to start KDE. I created a .xinitrc file with the start commands, but no joy. If I change the current runlevel to 5 (system isolate graphical.target) it will run, but I need to be root to do that. Is there anyway to get KDE to start without having to have root access? I haven't tried "sticky bit" to the graphical.target file yet, but thought I'd post here before spending anymore time troubleshooting.
