All the problems you're experiencing are essentially down to your 
self-acknowledged lack of experience with Linux distributions and 
commonly-used packages within. None of your problems are snort-specific, so 
I respectfully suggest that you get some books and/or training on the 
distro you're using, then revisit setting up a snort-based NIDS. You need 
to learn to walk before you can run.

As far as recommended books: <http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/>, 

Alternatively, if you just want a working NIDS, you might be better-off 
getting your employer to shell out some cash for one of the ready-built 
snort-based NIDS appliances, such as Sourcefire.

Best Regards and Good Luck!
