In linux kernel since version 2.6.12  
AppleTalk is the protocol that Apple computers can use to communicate
on a network. If your Linux box is connected to such a network and you
wish to connect to it, say Y. You will need to use the netatalk package
so that your Linux box can act as a print and file server for Macs as
well as access AppleTalk printers. Check out
<> on the WWW for details.
EtherTalk is the name used for AppleTalk over Ethernet and the
cheaper and slower LocalTalk is AppleTalk over a proprietary Apple
network using serial links. EtherTalk and LocalTalk are fully
supported by Linux.

General information about how to connect Linux, Windows machines and
Macs is on the WWW at <>. The
NET3-4-HOWTO, available from
<>, contains valuable
information as well.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be
called appletalk. You almost certainly want to compile it as a
module so you can restart your AppleTalk stack without rebooting
your machine. I hear that the GNU boycott of Apple is over, so
even politically correct people are allowed to say Y here.
