Thanks. But, should I just run the snort.exe after I extract the .zip
In the document, it mentioned to install Snort into C:\Snort\Bin folder.
What parameters should I give when I run the snort.exe? Or, I should put
all extracted files to C:\Snort\Bin?

Follow the directions that pertain to Snort in the document "Snort on
Win2k", and you should be up and running in no time.
