snort + promisc eth1 problems

hello Everybody

I've installed a snort box (yum install snort & snort-mysql) on FC7 with 2 NICs:
eth0 (
eth1 ( in promisc mode ***only*** dedicated to snort sinffing

all seems ok but still 2 problems persists:

1)what's the better way for putting eth1 on promisc mode on startup?
I've thought to edit /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth1 adding the line:
PROMISC=yes but it doesnt't go.
"ifconfig eth1 promisc" is the only solution?

2)I've modified /etc/rc.d/init.d/snortd adapting it to the snort-mysql binary:

# snortd         Start/Stop the snort IDS daemon.
# chkconfig: 2345 40 60
# description:  snort is a lightweight network intrusion detection tool that
#		currently detects more than 1100 host and network
#		vulnerabilities, portscans, backdoors, and more.

case "$1" in
	echo -n "Starting snort-mysql: "
        cd /var/log/snort
	daemon /usr/sbin/snort-mysql  -b -l /var/log/snort -d -D \
		-i $INTERFACE -c /etc/snort/snort.conf
	touch /var/lock/subsys/snort
	echo -n "Stopping snort-mysql: "
	killproc snort-mysql
	rm -f /var/lock/subsys/snort
	$0 stop
	$0 start
	status snort-mysql
	echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart|status}"
	exit 1
exit 0

pratically I've substituted "snort-mysql" with "snort" and deleted the " -A fast" option. This script is launched without problem at the FC7 very startup (as I can see from the console)
but after the login, "service snortd status" replies "snort-mysql is stopped".
everyway, "service snortd start" goes OK without problem..

thanks a lot in advance for your help,
