I finally got Nagios setup, the 20 minute up and running doesn't apply to me (took me much longer just go get to the web interface)!

Just like in NTOP i have one nic for accessing the web interface, and the other for monitoring traffic
(port mirrored on switch going directly to this nic)

How can i change what interface Nagios is monitoring?
its monitoring eth0 and i want it to monitor eth1

The configuration files normally live in /usr/local/nagios/etc/

If you are talking about monitoring a local interface on the nagios box the default configuration is called localhost.cfg which will allow you to change the interface it is monitoring.  Check if this applies to you otherwise you will need to search through the configuration and understand the macros.
