[Snort-users] Snort and Barnyard question about syslog output.

Hello All,
I am currently trying to use Snort and Barnyard to generate some real time 
alerts. I am currently using barnyard with the alert_syslog option. I am 
then using Syslog-ng to push this data to another server. The alerts get 
to my logging server fine, and are in the following format:

May  6 15:22:04 localhost barnyard: [1:0:0] Snort Alert [1:0:0] 
[Classification: Misc activity] [Priority: 3] {TCP} 

I using some generic rules that I have created for these alerts to be 
generated. I am wondering what I have to do to modify these rules so the 
signature/rule name is in the alert instead of "Snort Alert" or if I 
should use the alert_syslog2 in the barnyard configuration file.
