    That would be too much to ask for I guess on a free software (free file change monitors are available but not with a central monitoring capabilities etc).

    For Linux I use AIDE, with a few cleverly written  cronjobs you can have it email you the daily FIM reports or log them to a DB.  For windows we use Winanalysis which is not that expensive and does a pretty good job.

    We use them for PCI compliancy since FIM's are required
