I would like to contribute to the wiki.centos.org:
username: boel
subject: nagios incompatibility with centos 5.2
location: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Nagios
content: A security feature of centos 5.2 SELinux prevents the access 
from the apache httpd server to the needed /var/nagios files. The error 
manifests itself in the /var/log/messages as "SELinux is preventing the 
tac.cgi from using potentially mislabeled files ./status.dat (var_t)". A 
workaround is to execute the command: chcon -R httpd_sys_content_t 

Please grant me access
