"Sorry, this shell has no default setup.

Basically, your /etc/profile has some default settings
for the following shells; bash, ksh*, and sh.
You appear to be running one it doesn't have any defaults
for. It's just informing you. No harm. If you don't
want the message, just edit your /etc/profile

Of course you can. It never said you couldn't did it? :)
All it's asking is that, if you have any settings
for the shell you are using (what is it btw?) you'd
like to share, please tell us.
