Question: raw sockets

I'm using Raw sockets and have sent away a TCP packet with the SYN flag on. I get the
SYN|ACK response and responds to it. But the kernel beats me to it, and sends away a
RST packet before my ACK response to the SYN|ACK. How can you stop the kernel from
responding with a RST to the SYN|ACK? I use two seperate sockets, one for transmitting
and one for receiving.
