I'm not a Debian person, but I'll take a stab at this.

First, it may already be running. Try "ps auxw|grep tor" to find out.

In any case, that's not how you're supposed to be running it. The Debian
Tor package creates a separate user for Tor called debian-tor. The deb has
a script for starting Tor like every other daemon. You should be using it.

Try something like "/etc/rc.d/tor start"
