To catch every packet on the lan, you'll need a point where every packet goes through. Depending on the lan, that can be quite a feat. With a cisco switch you can use a "spanned" port, other manufacturers use the term "mirrored port" or port mirroring. You can also use a hub, if there is a point at which all your traffic passes through, plugging a pc into the hub, and the hub is also connected to the point at which all traffic must pass.
