Initial Comment:

Please Excuse me for barging in to your bug submit. 
I'm a newbie and have some questions about Snort... 
don't who else to contact about my install problem. 
Could you please help or point me in the right 
direction ? Thanks 

Question:

I've setup and configured Snort on W2K but am having a 
bit of trouble...

when I execute "load script" from idscenter, a DOS 
shell pops up and displays the following:

|>IDScenter test console <|
--Press ENTER after checking Snorts output--
Log directory = log

Initializing Network Interface \
ERROR: OpenPcap() FSM compilation failed:
		syntax error
PCAP command: Files\Sourcefire\Snort\snort.conf -1 
c:\Program files\Sourcefire\Snort -A full -h 
127.0.0.1/32 -i 1
Fatal Error, Quitting..


I've loaded the driver and configured the registry as 
explained in the FAQ's, what seems to be going on 
here ?

There is a space in the path to the snort.conf file. I 
don't use IDSCenter so I am not sure if you can put quotes 
(") around the path to the file but that IS what you need 
to do.
