Can anyone help me?

I'm trying to install Snort on a windows2000 box and in the final step I
get this error:

Here is my error in my web viewer:

Parse error: parse error in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\acid\acid_conf.php on
line 7
   Analysis Console for Intrusion Databases  

Invalid Database Type Specified

The variable $DBtype in acid_conf.php was set to the unrecognized
database type of ''. Only the following databases are supported: 

                MySQL       : 'mysql'
                PostgreSQL  : 'postgres'

Here is my c:\inetpub\wwwroot\acid\acid_conf.php below:

$ACID_VERSION = "0.9.6b6";
/* Path to the DB abstraction library */
#$DBlib_path = "../../adodb";
DBlib_path = "c:\snort\adodb";
/* The type of underlying alert database
   MySQL       : "mysql"
   PostgresSQL : "postgres"
$DBtype = "mysql";
/* Alert DB connection parameters
    - $alert_dbname   : MySQL database name of Snort alert DB
    - $alert_host     : host on which the DB is stored
    - $alert_port     : port on which to access the DB
    - $alert_user     : login to the database with this user
    - $alert_password : password of the DB user

   This information can be gleaned from the Snort database
   output plugin configuration.
$alert_dbname   = "snort";
$alert_host     = "localhost";
#$alert_port     = "";
$alert_user     = "snort";
#$alert_password = "";

Can you help?
