I want to setup a SNORT box on Ubuntu

I need to be stepped through setting up a SNORT box on Ubuntu.  I'm not familiar with either
and I did try and just got confused.  I got Ubuntu installed but when I was going through the SNORT instructions nothing seemed to work...I couldn't get the signatures load and stuff...

I need to slowly go through it step by step and ask whatever questions I have at each step.

I would prefer to give all the points to the one who is willing to walk me through this.
