wget http://www.snort.org/downloads/snortrules.tar.gz
tar -zxvf snortrules.tar.gz
cp rules/* /etc/snort/rules # (or wherever your rules exist)

snortrules.tar.gz is updated every 30 minutes from CVS.  Downloading
this every 30 minutes IS a bit much.  We usually make changes on a
daily basis.  

If you are looking for a regular update as to what changes are being
made with the signatures, I would subscribe to the snort-cvs so you
get up to the moment commit messages.
