	Try using a combination of single quotes an double quotes 
around your logfile name.  It would look like this minus the wrapping:

(maybe with ' ' instead)

That would probably do it for ya.  If not then just make a simple 
shell script than runs getload correctly and call that from MRTG.  In 
all my setups I create the config and the assorted scripts to data 
and format it right and a shell script to run MRTG with that config 
file.  Then I call that shell script in my crontab or by hand.  Saves 
a bunch of time in the end for me.  good luck!
