I'm overwhelmed by all this, but determined. Perhaps a little direction?

Brand new to snort, and the massive amount of info available.  I want to 
build up an inline config, but in looking at the user manual (2.9) I 
find nothing.  Then I found 2.8.6 and found references.  I then went to 
find differences between 2.9 and 2.8.6 figuring that maybe inline is 
being treated differently. Couldn't locate anything.  Google repeats 
over and over again how to set up a bare bones sniffer, or they are 
incredibly out of date.

Is there a way for me to see the various install config options for 2.9, 
I guess?  Should I stay with 2.8.6 because of the increased level of 
documentation?   I would like to incorporate features that may be useful 
to me, but I can't seem to find out what they might be.  Is there a way 
to get the slides and a transcript of the install webinar? Found other 
webinars, but for sure I'm not to that level yet. Can I do an inline 
from a binary install?

My goal is to get the basic system in  place so that I can play myself 
and make mods to the conf file, etc and see for myself.  What I would 
appreciate is getting the basic inline system in place with compile time 
options out of the way.

Thank you to whomever takes their time to respond.
