Hi

I suggest to add the following to the FAQ and btw. putting the FAQ from
the web page into the tar file anyways:

Q: What are this IDS codes in from of the alert names?
A: IDS means "Intrusion Detection Signature" (true?) and identifies a 
   known attack attempt. You can learn more about a specific IDS id
   at the arachNIDS search engine on http://www.whitehats.com/.

bye,
