The '.' and ':' are functionally the same in the chown command...  At
least with the syntax in the guide.

John and I worked together and got his installation working.  It was an
issue with Barnyard2 not importing into MySQL.

as far as the chown command, yes, it is a typo. 
However, file location is a matter of preference and where ever the
config files live you need to match them with how snort/barnyard is
invoked. This could be a startup script or within the .conf files
On the note that they fail to report try:
mysql -usnort -p<your mysql password> -D snort -e "select count(*) from
run this a few times if the database grows then either barnyard or snort
is logging.
Verify which by either commenting out 
output unified2: filename <your file name>, limit 128 --- from
snort.conf for barnyard logging
output database: log, mysql, user=snort password=<your
password> dbname=snort host=localhost --- from snort.conf for snort
Last you may look in your log files where the alerts are kept to see if
they are proper ownership. I have noticed if I run snort as a different
user it creates an alert.xxx file with different ownership and when I
start it with snort it gets hosed because of permissions. e.g make sure
all log files for snort alerts are:
chown snort:snort <path to log files>
