1. Install Python 2.5.

2. Download and install Scapy.

3. (For non-Linux platforms): Install libpcap and libdnet and their Python wrappers.

4. (Optional): Install additional software for special features.

5. Run Scapy with root priviledges.

Each of these steps can be done in a different way dependent on your platform and on the version of
Scapy you want to use.

At the moment, there are two different versions of Scapy:

Scapy v1.x. It consists of only one file and works on Python 2.4, so it might be easier to install.
Moreover, your OS may already have a specially prepared packages or ports for it. Last version is

Scapy v2.x. The current development version adds several features (e.g. IPv6). It consists of
several files packaged in the standard distutils way. Scapy v2 needs Python 2.5.

Note: In Scapy v2 use from scapy.all import * instead of from scapy import *.
