Easily done.

That's fine.  It sounds like there is another error in your snort.conf.
I'll also bet that your startup script calls Snort with the '-D'
parameter.  To check for your real error, just start Snort as your script
does just without the '-D'.  Then you should see your true error.  Once
you have that, let us know and we'll see what we can do.
