[Snort-users] Installing Snort on Win 2K

I think I will start over with a clean install using the guide.

I do have one more question:
There seem to be a lot of choices (More than I thought for Bill's OS). IIS
Vs Apache; FlexRESP Vs  ACID Vs SnortSnarf. Has anyone done a side by side
comparison in a table format to show the benefits and limitations of each?
That would help a newbie like me figure out which way to start with first.

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.
