This is FAQ 3.2 of the version of the FAQ on the website:

you just don't configure the interface and then force it up with ifup.

 From there snort can sniff packets just fine..

and before you ask, yes you can have IPTables blocking packets and snort 
will still see them.. snort sniffs at the ethernet level, not the IP stack
