Check your RULE_PATH declaration in the step #1 section of snort.conf. You can use an absolute path instead of a relative path if that is giving you trouble - most installation guides have the rules in /etc/snort/rules but you can put them elsewhere if you want. Just make sure the RULE_PATH variable accurately points to the right rules directory.
