Thank you Joel
Sure, I will try BASE. About the ICMP, ya thats true but i want to study more about how this rules get fired and how attacks are made, so i was looking for more attacks for my understanding and learning about the network security. so if you have more info regarding where i can download those codes i will more than helpful.
best regards


#1 -- Don't use ACID, use BASE.  http://base.secureideas.net
#2 -- You can use something like nessus to make Snort alert to make  
sure it's generating alerts, however, if you already receiving ICMP  
alerts, then you know it working properly.
