You did not specify which type of IDS you are looking at. A NIDS (network
IDS) or a HIDS (host IDS). Best practices say a mix of both. You also did
not specify if it was to be a single sensor or the network
DMZ etc. But be that as it may, you can pull it off pretty much on the cheap
with something like Tripwire for the HIDS and Snort (PureSecure) or the like
to get a clean package. If you really want to have some fun, toss a honeypot
into the DMZ to act as an early warning system :)
