Run levels, ls -la, /dev/random

I have three questions regarding my newly completed LFS system:

1.) I know the purpose of the run levels in my distro, but I was wondering 
what the author had in mind for the functionality of run levels 2-5 on the 
LFS system.

2.) Try doing a `ls -la | less` on your LFS system..  It gives me some 
weird characters around the filenames.  Is this happening to anyone 
else?  Anyone know how to fix it?

3.) How can I make /dev/random and/or  /dev/urandom for my LFS system.

Thanks in advance!
