Yes. That's assuming that "segment" means a non-switched hub, or a switch
where you can choose a management port on which all other ports traffic is

I'm doing that here at the moment on my test snort box. One card for my
workstation traffic, and the other into a monitoring 100M hub on which
"interesting" LAN traffic has been rewired to travel over. :-)

Bloody marvelous :-)
