I'd like to know how to eliminate the Prompt dialog that pops up when I attempt to enter Safe mode on Windows XP.

A paraphrase of the text is below...

Dialog Title: Desktop
 
Windows is running in Safe Mode.  
To proceed to work in safe mode, click Yes.  
If you prefer to use System Restore to restore 
your computer to a previous state, click No.
 
     ---  YES ---     ---  NO ---
 
.

after some research I'm afraid there may not be any registry setting or file setting
It doesn't appear like theres a normal way of disabling the prompt

maybe disabling systems restore would help, but that's not really a solution
