If running an old version of kismet (pre 2009) start kismet_server in one terminal and see why it's failing.

If running a modern version of kismet (2009 and 2010), go to the server console window in the UI (like the UI should tell you to).

If you're using an old kismet you really should upgrade. I know for a while kismet on backtrack was pretty broken, too.
