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
source tree:

  "sh ./autojunk"
  "./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.
