Run Snort in sniffer mode (snort -dvi eth0) and make sure it can see the
packets.  Then run it with the HOME_NET set appropriately for the network
you're defending.

If it's all set right, once it's running do an "ifconfig -a" and make sure the
interface is in promiscuous mode (it'll say so in the options section of the
printout).  If it's not, there should be a way to set it manually.  Try that
and let us know how it goes.
