CONFIG_ATALK: Appletalk protocol support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_ATALK has multiple definitions:

Appletalk protocol support found in drivers/net/appletalk/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_ATALK:

Help text

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 http://www.zettabyte.net/netatalk/ 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 http://www.eats.com/linux_mac_win.html. The NET3-4-HOWTO, available from http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#howto, 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.
