A "Note: Enabling services can reduce system security" link between ?
and Always enable this that links to a documentation page that explains
in somewhat simple terms the implications of running more services --
this dialog does not make it clear why it asks about this task opposed
to browsing the web or reading email.
Or, perhaps, a help link that says something like "Why do we ask you
about enabling this service?".
