All of your questions can be answered at www.snort.org.

Yes, you need a rules file to make SNORT work well...

  I'm new to Linux and SNORT and was wondering if I could get some tips
and/or help.  I have installed SNORT v1.8 rpm on Red Hat 7.1, when it
complained about missing a file, which I believe was the rules file, I just
supplied it with a blank file.  I'm not sure if there are some sort of rules
I need to download or if it updates them itself.  I've been seeing a lot of
activity (80-90% ARP Broadcasts), but so far SNORT reports no activity.  Is
there a way to test it and ensure it is working ok.  Also, is there some
where I show get updated rules from?  I kept clicking on links on the
website for rules, but came to the download page and couldn't find anything.
Any help would be great.
