To install as a service check out the WIN32_FAQ.txt, it will be in the
directory you unzipped snort 1.7 to. You use INSTSRV.EXE to install
SRVANY.EXE as a service, which then calls the snort executable. I had some
problems but only because I failed to carefully read and follow the
instructions in the FAQ.

As for your rules start simple, test out just one rule and see if you can
trigger it.

Hope this helps.
