Install the netsaint-plugins package-- nagios is a rewrite of netsaint, 
the plugins are compatible, and you'll be OK.

If you want/need more plugins, then you can download/install/configure 
then on your own-- but you'll have to put them in checkcommands.cfg on 
your own. (manually)

The (current) nagios package isn't really setup for new users, 
unfortunately.
