We need a FAQ for this one.

alias net-pf-3 off # AX.25
alias net-pf-4 ipx # IPX
alias net-pf-5 appletalk # Appletalk

I don't compile the AX.25 module, so I don't know the name of
the object file for it. I leave it turned off. If you don't
use either of the other protocols in your system, you should
turn those off as well.
