Fix Recommendation

To disable the ability for users to perform interactive startups, edit the file "/etc/sysconfig/init". Add or correct the line:

PROMPT=no

The "PROMPT" option allows the console user to perform an interactive system startup, in which it is possible to select the set of services which are started on boot.
