This means you've got snort installed into "C:\program
files\Sourcefire\Snort".  It also means that you don't have double quotes
around the path.  To fix it, either place quotes around the path or install it
somewhere else (w/o a apce in the name).

XXX?  XXX usually means "Graphic Nudity" or something like that.  ;-)  No XXX
listed above...

Google:  snort (walkthrough or walkthru or howto)
