Only if you're worried what people are doing inside your network to each
other.  For a home network I don't think you need to worry too much about
mom and dad hacking your box (at least I don't).

Good point.

However you will still need to run another copy of Snort for your inside 
network (for traffic that doesn't go through the firewall), right?

FYI, Snort does support non-promiscuous mode with the "-p" switch.
