You should read the documentation for this kind of question, but it
looks OK to me.

OK, if this is on the remote host, then this is good.

How are you running check_nrpe on the Nagios server? I think it should
be something like this:
check_nrpe -H <remote-host> -c check_load -a 5 6
(you put the arguments for the check_load plugin after the '-a', as above.)
If that doesn't work, then something is wrong with check_nrpe on the
Nagios server calling NRPE on the remote server.

I strongly believe that this is probably the case ;-)
