 I can vouch for this - spent too many hours trying to get snort/acid 
running (ain't done it yet) ... have, however, successfully config'd 
and run a smoothwall GPL firewall - runs snort optionally. At least I 
can see the pig in action, even if I can't config it (sheepish grin). 
It's it's a beginning, and a mighty nice teacher.
 See www.smoothwall.org and no, I'm not a shareholder ;) but a student 
of all of this security stuff.
