I tried this command but not working see below

Switch#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Switch(config)#interface range fa0/1 - 12

Switch(config)#interface fa0/1
Switch(config-if)#switchport access vlan 2

Unfortunately, the int range command is not supported on IOS version 12.0.

The error "FastEthernet0/1 is being monitored" indicates to me that it may be a source port for a SPAN configuration.
See http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_tech_note09186a008015c612.shtml for more info on SPAN.

The 3500's do not support anything newer than 12.0. The most recent release from 10 April 2007 is 12.0(5)WC17

The following is from the 3560 documentation.

interface range
Use the interface range global configuration command to enter interface range configuration mode and to execute a command on multiple ports at the same time. Use the no form of this command to remove an interface range.

interface range {port-range | macro name}

no interface range {port-range | macro name}

Syntax Description
 port-range
 Port range. For a list of valid values for port-range, see the "Usage Guidelines" section.
 
macro name
 Specify the name of a macro.
 



Defaults
This command has no default setting.

Command Modes
Global configuration

Command History
 Release  Modification  
12.1(19)EA1
 This command was introduced.

The difference is most likely bug fixes, not any new features.

To remove the monitor, you need to find the port that is monitoring F0/1. Look for this command on another port.

port monitor FastEthernet0/1

Then you need to modify this port config to remove that line.
