snort on ubuntu 8.04


I am following this guide on how to install snort on ubuntu and i am on the mysql part, it tells me to issue this command:

mysql> grant all privileges on snort.* to 'snort'@'localhost' identified by 'snort_password';

everytime i do i get this error:

ERROR 1290 (HY000): The MySQL server is running with the --skip-grant-tables option so it cannot execute this statement

how do i fix this?
