Knoppix-STD v 0.1 has Snort 2.10 installed but I think you would have
trouble running it for 5 days if you are going to send a lot of traffic to
it.  You could try installing Knoppix to hard disk and would probably have
better results.

Another option is to try Patrick Harper's new installation document that
uses more RPM's and looks much easier to install.

If you can't find a pre-setup snort box for lease - Knoppix-STD is a
Linux distribution that boots of CD and has snort on I think. Then
you'd just need to find some generic leased equipment which should be
a little bit easier to get hold of.
