the oinkcode is NOT the rules' md5... the oinkcode is generated for you when you 
register at snort.org... it is your code and no one else's... if you do not have 
an oinkcode and do not want one, then the community rules are the only ones you 
can retrieve from snort.org... other sites may or may not have similar 
identifying codes for their more restricted rules sets...

so, don't do that! go register and get your own oinkcode for your sensor ;)
