It's easy.  The mrtg.cfg file and log files are the same.
The only gotcha that I can think of is the location of
the files.  In 2.5.x, I had everything in the:
	/u/mrtg-2.5.4/  (unix)
	C:\MRTG-2.5.4\  (dos)
directories.  The current 2.8.6 wants to have the major files
	/u/mrtg-2.8.6/run/  (unix)
	C:\MRTG-2.8.6\run\  (dos)
If you have any targets that execute scripts or have files that
are directory location specific, these will need to be tweaked.

There's also an open question as to which version of Perl
is required.  The mrtg perl script says 5.003 or above.
The main MRTG web page says 5.004.  I'm using 5.003 without
problems but may have missed some errors or features.  Run:
	perl -v
for version info.
