[Snort-users] Newbie Question on using snort

I've been given the job of setting up snort in our environment and I've managed to get it all working on windows - 2 slave sensors logging to a master sensor. It produces alerts although maybe not as many as I'd expect but anyway. I've also got and read most of Brian Caswell's Snort 2.0 book. What I'm trying to find though are some good websites or books that explain how to customise the snort installation and why you would leave out certain rules and include others. Additionally, I'm also interested in finding information on how to read the alerts or rather what is alert xyz actually telling me. 
Apologies if these are fairly brain-dead questions but my network analysis experience is fairly limited.
