SNORT and PIX 501

I'm trying to deploy a Snort box in my small home network.  My question: Is it possible to dedicate one of the four ports on a Cisco PIX 501 to monitor all traffic passing through the PIX?  (Along the same lines of dedicating a switch port to mirror traffic.)  Does the PIX have this type of functionality?  I'd like to push that traffic to my Snort box.  If so, does anyone have a relative sample config that would mirror traffic to a specific port?

Nope - the 501 (nor any of the PIX's IIRC) have this functionality
