I was trying to use INSTSRV.EXE to directly run Snort. The FAQ does indeed
have excellent instructions. Thanks for your help.

Actually, if you look in the WIN32_FAQ.txt, in the snort zip file you
downloaded, and read the answer to the question " How to start snort
as a win32 service?" It should give you step by step instructions.
