        x Tunneling means encapsulating data of one protocol type within x
        x another protocol and sending it over a channel that understands the x
        x encapsulating protocol. This particular tunneling driver implements x
        x encapsulation of IP within IP, which sounds kind of pointless, but x
        x can be useful if you want to make your (or some other) machine x
        x appear on a different network than it physically is, or to use x
        x mobile-IP facilities (allowing laptops to seamlessly move between x
        x networks without changing their IP addresses). x
        x x
        x Saying Y to this option will produce two modules ( = code which can x
        x be inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you x
        x want). Most people won't need this and can say N. x
