I'm not entirely certain what you mean by 'installation' per se, so
I'll just cover a few bases. The following assumes you've already
issued your 'co' command and have source on your local drive now.
To synchronize your local sources with any changes made by
"cvs -z3 update"
To compile your checked out code, issue these commands from your
"./configure [any options here]"
Then just install how you normally would.
As a side note, you should be using SNORT_2_3. SNORT_2_1 is obsoleted.
