1) Modify the *-lib files to get rid of alerts you aren't interested in.  The
library files that ship with Snort are merely an example, not a required rule

2) You can modify the syslog facility by setting it in the rules file with the
'output syslog:' directive.  See the "Writing Snort Rules" page for more info.
