I don't know what to do..  I've been working on this all morning.  Any
help would be greatly appreciated!  I am running RedHat 8.0

What URL should one goto if the compilation and installation have gone
successfully to view data?

I'm trying Http://inetmon/ls/ (but no index.html was created for apache
to display)
I'm also trying http://inetmon/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi but I receive the
following output from Apache:
Server error!
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your
Error message: 
Premature end of script headers: smokeping.cgi 
If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster 
Error 500

Below is my smokemail.config file and my /bin/smokemail script.  

[root at netmon ls]# less /etc/smokeping.config 
# Note that all IP addresses in this file are false, to prevent some
# machine falling uder a deadly DOS storm because all users keep
# the same addresses in their config.

=head1 NAME

smokeping - Commandline tool for SmokePing


B<smokeping> [ B<--email> | B<--makepod> | B<--version> | B<--restart> ]


 --man      Show the manpage
 --help     Help :-)
 --email    Send SmokePing Agents to all Targets marked DYNAMIC
 --makepod  Create POD documentation on Config file
 --version  Show SmokePing Version
 --debug    Run Only once and do not Fork

The B<smokeping> tool is the commandline part of the SmokePing system.
main function is to run as a daemon and send Pings to all the Targets
have specified in the Config file. When you call B<smokeping> without
arguments it will start as a daemon and do it's work.

If called with an argument, then further functions can be activated, as
in the Synopsis above. The B<--email> function is explained in the
documentation on the config file.

The B<--makepod> does get used internally to produce the documentation
the SmokePing configuration file.

Please refer to the installation document for detailed setup

=head1 SETUP

When installing SmokePing, this file has to be adjusted to fit your
local system. Three paths have to be entered.

One pointing to your B<rrdtool> installation

 use lib qw(/usr/pack/rrdtool-1.0.33-to/lib/perl);

One pointing to the place where you have installed the SmokePing

 use lib qw(/home/oetiker/public_html/smokeping/lib);

The third path is the argument to the Smokeping::main command. It points
the SmokePing configuration file.

 use Smokeping;
