Ok, and did you try to look the error up, or read the man page on arpd??
You don't say what the exact command you typed in is, but you need to specify where the database IS, with the "-b" switch. Did you? Does that file/directory exist???? By default, it's /var/lib/arpd/arpd.db; if that directory doesn't exist, create it. Read the man page.
