You can say N here if you don't intend to connect your Linux box to any other computer at all.

You'll have to say Y if your computer contains a network card that you want to use under Linux. If you are going to run SLIP or PPP over telephone line or null modem cable you need say Y 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.

See also "The Linux Network Administrator's Guide" by Olaf Kirch and Terry Dawson. Available at http://www.tldp.org/guides.html.

If unsure, say Y.
