Raw Packets

I would like to know how to send a raw packet onto an ethernet lan with
Linux.

The format I want is

write_raw(Source_Ether_Addr,Dest_Ether_Address,data,datalen)
and
read_raw(Source_Ether_Addr,Dest_Ether_Address,data,datalen)

I want to be able to communicate between various Systems based only on
their Ethernet address. The data can be encrypted or unencrypted.

Are there any routines available to do this kind of thing and if so where
can I find them.

Thanks in anticipation
