I like this version. The only comment is that first and last chapters both tell how the recovery works if this option is chosen. This version doesn't tell what the situation is if this option is not chosen. Therefore I would either keep the last chapter intact or combine the last chapters of old and new.

The simplest fix would be to add a few words to the middle paragraph:

     [...], so the default is to install
     recover without the special permission bits required for that.

Revised template with that and Christian's tweak attached.

Ok, that's fine.

Another thing, which doesn't really concern the template, is that run during system boot probably doesn't help very many people (I would think). It helps if Nethack crashed because the playing server booted, but in other situations that recovery would be too late. If my connection drops I would like to continue playing as soon as I get the connection up, not when the server is booted for kernel upgrade five months later. :-)

There's always "sudo /etc/init.d/nethack-common start".

Sure, if you have rights to sudo...
