Groundwork is a nice collection of open-source monitoring tools: nagios, cacti, etc.  It has a decent web-based nagios config tool.  Useful if you are struggling with maintaining your configs.

If you just want nagios, and none of the other stuff, you can just use the monarch nagios config part of groundwork:

Here is a good list of front-ends too, if you're interested:
