Have you checked your /etc/ dir under nagios that those cfg files exist? If they exist, have you checkd permissions?

Jason,thanks for emailing me back, i checked that folder and all the cfg files are there,how do you check the permission?
thanks
robbie

ls -al will show you the permissions, owner and group make sure all the cfg files are owned / grouped to the same user you configured nagios with.
