I think this is it, after some fixes, grammar and being clearer. Comitting now,
additional changes can be made later without Bugzilla

If you don't know what to answer to all the questions asked during 
the make phase, then just accept the defaults, which
will be just in fine in the majority of the cases. What you are asked here
are a bunch of questions relating to the kind of network protocols that you
have enabled in your kernel.

The default answers will enable the tools from this package to work 
with the most common protocols such as TCP, PPP and a bunch of others. You
still need to actually enable these protocols in the kernel. What you do
here is merely telling the programs to be able to use those protocols but
it's up to the kernel to make it available to the system.
