Okay, that works to get the service to start (along with "chcon -t
nagios_var_run_t -R nagios/" while in /var just to be sure).  I'm
still getting "Error: Could not read object configuration data!" in
the nagios pages, though.  It looks like I'll have to play around with
some of the configuration options and see what happens.
