Subject: [Snort-users] Installing Snort on Win 2K

I realize this is a newbie question but I am trying to install Snort 
1.8.5 on a Win2K pro machine on my home network.  and am getting 
problems with finding certain files it looks for ie. Alert.ids, in 
addition when I send it to alertmail.ids it seems happy (satisfied) 
with that but when I test configuration I get a Error msg:

Error:  Openpcap device() open:
		error opening adapter
Fatal error quiting.

Any ideas what causes this and if there is somewhere where I can find 
documentation on installing snort on WIN2K  I seem to be able to find 
a plethora of info for flavors of unices.
