I installed JFFNMS - and I hated it right from the start - the interface
was barely usable even with 1920x1200.

Check out www.zabbix.com
It needs an agent, but with the agent, a lot of stuff is autodetected
(drives etc - in Nagios, you've got to do a lot of manual work).
I still like Nagios for its flexibility, though.
