Description:The RedHat init script has this line in it:

# chkconfig: 2345 40 60

The "2345" will start the Asterisk service at bootup by default.  As a security measure, the Asterisk service should not be started at bootup by default.  The administrator of the system should manually enable the service by running "chkconfig asterisk on" as root.

Really? I guess you can argue as a security measure, but I have to type 'make config' to get the init script installed anyways. If I'm going to type that, my assumption is that it is going to start by default...
