 From memory, I got this a bit when I first set up NRPE. It basically 
gives this error if check_nrpe on the Nagios server can't get a response 
from NRPE on the remote server.

Just a thought: Have you set up the nagios user on the remote host? This 
is necessary, as this user is specified in your /etc/xinetd.d/nrpe file...

If you have already set up the nagios user on the remote host, have you 
tried executing the check_load plugin on the remote host as the nagios user?

I was referring to the Nagios and Nagios Plugins documentation, i.e. how 
you set up Nagios and the plugins.
