When I try to install it for myself it works just fine, but I when I try install it for a group of users, it gives me errors that some packages/modules are missing. I used the following cabal command:
>>>cabal install --prefix=$PREFIX --build-log=/tmp/xmonad.log.3 xmonad (where my prefix is /net/tools/xmonad/0.10

Changing --prefix does not change the registry used; if you want to do a global install, you need to add the --global option so that the package is registered in the global database instead of the local one. (Note that --global will also change the default install location to the one ghc itself is installed in, which is /usr/local for the official Haskell Platform packages and /usr for most Linux distribution packages.)
