You mean:
"Sorry, this shell has no default setup.
 Please contact with the shell details
 and what you would like set as reasonable defaults.

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.
