I am new to the MAC world and I need some help installing Ethereal on it.  I have heard I have to install the X11 toolkit, and fink and all this other stuff.  Anyone know of a good doc that will walk me through the process ?

    I started by installing the XCode Tools, and the MAC told me I already had them installed.  So I downloaded and installed Fink, and ran the Fink Commander, but when I double-click on ethereal, I get the following error :

    Failed: Can't resolve dependency "x11" for package "gtk+2-shlibs-2.4.9-8" (no matching packages/versions found)

    Any ideas ?
