[Snort-users] Snorting with a single ethernet card

Is it possible to run Snort with a single network
card? Apart from security concerns, is there any
reason why snort will not start with only one card? 

I'm just testing Snort in a separate Internet
connection (away from my LAN), and I'm not so
concerned about not using 2 cards with Snort.

I'm running a very typical Snort config, and I 've
installed Snort following the Scott guide step by step
(great doc for newbies like me): RH 7.3, Apache+Acid,
Webmin with Snort plugin, etc. 
I had to change the startup snort script to make it
sniff on eth0 instead of eth1, but "snortd start" is
not working. 

Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.
