README reference to capture interface type and source as synonyms is confusing. Would appreciate your input.

I read Dragorn's response to 'can't connect to local host: 2501'. I have write permission to the directory, and it throws the same flag run as root. This version of kismet.config doesn't have an entry for suiduser.

Considering I'm using the current versions of Slackware and Kismet and Linux is Kismet's target OS, what more legitimate place is there for the files configure couldn't find to be than on my hard drive, and where are they sequestered??

At a dead end,
