[Snort-users] Cannot get Acid to report any activity

I am feeling a bit dumb lately. I cannot see any activity through ACID.

I have configured Snort using Guy Bruneau's Shadow/Snort ISO. All seems
to be well, the sensor is saving alerts in the log files located at
/usr/local/snort/log/*. I can read them via less.

I would like to check to see if the logs are making it to mysql. How can
I query the database to verify that the logs are moving to mysql? 

If I find the logs are getting to mysql, how do I check my connection
between acid and mysql?

Any ideas would be helpful.

I normally do NT admin, so I only have a poor mans knowledge of Linux.
So, what I am saying is... Don't be to vague with your answers... :-)
