NETDEVICES — Network device support


You can say no here if you do not intend to connect your Linux box to any other computer.

You'll have to say yes if your computer contains a network card that you want to use under Linux. If you are going to run SLIP or PPP over a telephone line or null modem cable you need say yes here. Connecting two machines with parallel ports using PLIP needs this, as well as AX.25/KISS for sending Internet traffic over amateur radio links.
