[Snort-users] Cannot determine the network type

When issuing the command snort -dvi 1 to initiate sniffer mode on my WIN32
(Win2000) client I get a message saying "ERROR OpenPcap () device <packet>
open - Cannot determine the network type"

Any ideas why I would be getting this? Please excuse my ignorance if it is
obvious as I am trying to learn about snort.
