I have installed Snort on NT 4.0 and now it keeps filling the system event
log with these messages: 

Service:	Service Control Manager
Type:		Error
Category:	None
Event id:	7000
Message:	The Netgroup Packet Filter Service failed to start due to
the following error:
		The system cannot open the file.

Snort is installed and the idscenter.exe configuration tool works (it hangs
occasionally, but it is beta...)

Does anybody know
	- what this "Netgroup Packet Filter Service" is?
	- is it a part of NT or something that should be downloaded?
	- or is this a symptom of a configuration error?
	- what to do now?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
