No it doesn´t, the directory that I specified in the config file is empty

This is what I have in my config file:

contact  = nene at sal.gbnet.cc
mailhost = sal.gbnet.cc
sendmail = /usr/lib/sendmail

piddir  = /var/smokeping-1.25/dist/var
cgiurl   =

Hi everyone, I´m a Newbie and this is my first time I write to this 
list, recentlly I´d installed Smokeping on my Red Hat 7.2 system, I 
followed all the instructions that web site mentioned, edited all the 
.dist files but I don´t know what to do next.

I run the deamon with ./smokeping command but nothing happens, the 
prompt doesn´t appear anymore and I don´t get any .cgi files.

Can anyone help me and give me a big hand......
