UNIXer,

How can I disable the confirmation notify (eg. rm) ?
Is there any command like prompt in ftp ?

Sounds that you have an alias to rm. Default is without confirmation (-i). Check with alias.

It may also be possible that your system admin have changed the rm to a shell with rm -i. If the answer from ahoffmann doesn't work, ask your sysadmin.
