I said I'm new to linux, not retarded. I looked at all the previous threads. They offer no help to me. I pretty much knew someone was going to reply exactly as you did, but I figured I'd give it a shot anyway. On the "I'm new to linux" note, the link you provided me offers no explanation for a newbie.

I also tried installing via the Synaptic Package Manager, and everything goes fine until I run it and get some error saying that " Kismet will not function if no packet sources are defined in kismet.conf or on the command line." Then it tells me to look in the readme, and I can't find that either.
