Snort is failing because it can't find this .snortrc file. I checked in /root 
and there is no .snortrc file there. Is this why snort is exiting with a fatal
error? If so, does anyone have a sample one you can send me please? 

I have snort, Version 1.9.0 (Build 209)

I'm running PPP via dialup modem on a Debian/unstable system with 2.4.18 kernel.
