Hi Ben
Thanks for quick update. 
I am attaching the monitrc control file which I am using.
I am also attaching the things I get on console when I start monit with
verbose option. It confirms the starting of monit in daemon mode.
I have already set the logfile as specified by you but it does not show
any error on start. Monit starts without error but when I do 'monit
status' it gives me - 'monit: no status available -- the monit daemon is
not running'.

I run monit on fedora core3 without any trouble.

Could you post your /etc/monitrc file, so that we may see if it is a
configuration issue?

You could also add "set logfile /var/log/monit.log" to your monitrc to
enable logging - it might give you more information.
