By default. FYI:
# Defaults for the boot scripts in /etc/rcS.d
# Time files in /tmp are kept in days.
# Set to yes if you want sulogin to be spawned on bootup
# Set to no if you want to be able to login over telnet/rlogin
# before system startup is complete (as soon as inetd is started)
# Set UTC=yes if your system clock is set to UTC (GMT), and UTC=no if
# Set VERBOSE to "no" if you would like a more quiet bootup.
# Set EDITMOTD to "no" if you don't want /etc/motd to be editted
# Set FSCKFIX to "yes" if you want to add "-y" to the fsck at startup.
