[Nagiosplug-help] NRPE Help

I'm using Nagios 1.2, NRPE 2.0, Plugins 1.4, and both local and remote
hosts are Fedora Core 2.

I'm having issues getting NRPE to report values.

Here's what I've tried.

in checkcommands.cfg

# 'check_nrpe' command definition
define command{
        command_name    check_nrpe
        command_line    $USER1$/check_nrpe -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -w $ARG1$ -c $ARG2$

in services.cfg

# Check Load Service definition
define service{
        use                             generic-service
        host_name                       Hermes
        service_description             Load
        is_volatile                     0
        check_period                    24x7
        max_check_attempts              3
        normal_check_interval           5
        retry_check_interval            2
        contact_groups                  linux-admins
        notification_interval           60
        check_command                   check_nrpe!check_load -H
$HOSTADDRESS$ -w 5.0,4.0,3.0 -c 10.0,6.0,4.0

Then I get "(No output returned from plugin)" on the web interface.

I'm sure I've botched some syntax somewhere.  This is the first nrpe
service I've tried to define.  Can anyone point our what I've done

Thanks in advance.
