Unhappy Nagios 2.0b1 Installation problem

Hi, I am newbie and trying to install the nagios 2.0b1 in my debian sarge box.
I have download the tar ball file and untar it to proceed installation, I run through
the ./configure, make all, make install, make install-init, make install-commadmode when I run make install-config, it occur error on install the contactgroups.cfg-sample, error message show no file found in the sample-config>template-object directory. I have checked the md5sum number match after download. I wonder why it happens?

"/usr/bin/install: cannot stat `sample-config/template-object/contactgroups.cfg': No such file or directory
make: *** [install-config] Error 1"

Because of lacking the sample configuration file, then I write from scratch from nagios online documentation, Unfortunately, I try to run /usr/local/nagios/bin/nagios -v /etc/nagios.cfg, after the pre-check process, it show me there is a error on

"Checking services...
Error: Service check command 'check_stmp' specified in service 'check smtp' for host '' not defined anywhere!"

Now I am facing the main problem to start up the nagios daemon due to error foremention. I really wonder where is my mistake. Anywhere your help is appreciated and thank you in anticipation.....
