I'm having trouble installing ethereal.  I've used it before but my new laptop won't let it work.  And yes I have read there website, but what the hell does, "You'll either have to build from source or install UCD SNMP 4. 1. 2 or

later (with the same shared library version number as the

not-binary-compatible-with-earlier-Red-Hat-releases libsnmp that comes

with RH 6. 2). " mean.  I just wanna use this simple software? Any ideas?

Maybe its that fact that ethereal has been replaced by Wireshark for years?

Na, too obvious.

Umm... download and double click on the exe (yes, install winpcap), or type "apt get install wireshark", "yum install wireshark" or "cd /usr/ports/net/wireshark && make install wireshark". If your on windows you should know how to install things, and if  your using some form of *nix use the package manager as it takes care of all that stuff for you.

Edit 1:

And i've just twigged that your on a mac, so you will need to install an X11 server and use the GTK version. Have a look at http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/macports/wiki

Edit 2:

I misread the above  post by DarkBlueBox
