I am using snort 1.9.0 and am unable to get it to work pse see the below 
noted I would be most grateful for any ideas as
to what I am doing wrong. I am fully conversant with tcpdump/ethereal 
and the such but this is stumping me!!!

monkeylabs:/home/don/Documents/snort-1.9.0/src # ./snort -dvr 
/home/don/ch1.capture -A full -c netbios.rules

Log directory = /var/log/snort
TCPDUMP file reading mode.
Reading network traffic from "/home/don/ch1.capture" file.
