Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] No interfaces listed to capture packets

I just installed the MacOSX version of Wireshark downloaded from www.wireshark.org/download.html.
I have a brand new MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard (10.6.2). The 
downloaded item was OS X 10.5(Leopard) Intel.dmg.
I followed the instructions regarding the installation of the 
application and the various scripts. But when I start Wireshark it does 
not list any interfaces (eth0, eth1, etc) to select.
Also when starting the machine, it complains about the items in 
"/Library/StartupItems/ChmodBPF" has not been started because it does 
not have the proper security settings.
Any ideas, or does the application need to be tweaked for Snow Leopard?

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to report this.
