How will this script rewrite snort.conf ?

Maybe i don't know bash, but i see nothing there.

# Update rules
cd /tmp		* changing directories*
rm -rf rules	* removing previous rules if they exist*
/usr/bin/wget http://www.snort.org/downloads/snortrules.tar.gz	*wget'ing
snortrules (old URL)*
tar -xvzf snortrules.tar.gz	* decompressing archive *
mv /tmp/rules/* /etc/snort/rules	* move rules to your rules
directory, assuming you use /etc/snort/rules *
---end script---

I personally don't see how that will overwrite snort.conf.

I suggest using oinkmaster to update your rules, its alot better than this
bash script.
Or you can manually do it, it isn't really all that hard.

this script will rewrite the snort.conf
is there any other script out there?  or can i just mv
the *.rules   but then the .conf would also have to be
updates eventually ....
