I guess etc/snort.conf is a valid w2k text file with correct permission 
(additionally, make sure it exists everywhere on your toysystem, who 
knows from which directory snort will be executed as a service ?) and 
you checked it was a valid snort configuration file. As an additional 
recommendation, read the documentation (of both snort & your system. And 
try to understand it).
