Indeed, that helps sgt_b!

was running as root....dir didn't exist....but, alas, I thought all logging 
is configured via the output plugins, and given that I chose mysql as the 
logging db instead of to a dir, I thought I shouldn't have to create it?

Where is that default call to /var/log/snort made from?  I don't see it in 
the conf file...perhaps I'm missing it?

So you can either

>/path/to/logging/directory' to log to a directory of your choosing.
