You might want to look for a newer version. Versions prior to 3.0.5 have security problems. The configuration files for 2.x and 3.x are the same as I recall.

I'd start by defining a basic ping service and getting that working first. Getting NSclient (also somewhat outdated but still usable) and NRPE up and running is just a bit more advanced. And NSclient configuration isn't the same as NRPE configuration. If you're not already aware of it, you'll need to install software on any systems that you're going to be doing any monitoring more than sophisticated than pinging.

I would strongly recommend one of two books: Nagios System and Network Monitoring by Wolfgang Barth or Pro Nagios 2.0 by James Turnbull. Both a very good at helping get things set up. These texts (one I borrowed and the other I bought) were a big help when I inherited a Nagios monitoring system a while back. And they'll explain things better than I could do here. Sorry if this isn't what you're looking for but Nagios configuration is not exactly, IMHO, a newbie type of question.

Later...
