IPS 4240 Newbie Question

Just got a 4240. I have it up and running, the question I have is about physical placement in the network. I would like to monitor outside the firewall, and set up an inline-pair to block traffic that passes through the firewall. My dumb question is this. Do the ports for the inline-pair plug into the same switch? If so, do I set both of those up as spannning ports? Would I include anything else in the span? firewall port that feeds the lan? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This document also provides an overview of the Management options. A brief overview of each application is provided, as well as a version compatibility matrix. Versions listed in each compatibility matrix are the only supported versions.
