I'd do a "more /etc/rc.d/init.d/snortd" to read the text of what that
script does.

All the stuff in /etc/rc.d/init.d are just scripts that start, stop,
and report status on various daemons and other such..

So "snortd" has to contain a command line that's pointing to the snort
executable, perhaps with command line switches.

Personally, if I were you, I'd be starting snort manually from the
command line, slowly adding to the command line as each part of it
worked properly.

Only after I had it working manually would I use
"etc/rc.d/init.d/snortd", and only *then* when I had edited snortd to
contain the exact same commands that I knew worked, manually.
