         Yes, I got the same problem, monitoring a HP lxr 8000, with 2Gb 
RAM. Actually, I'm using . to get free by bytes.

         As we're getting free BYTES, the Maxbytes would have to be: 
2147483648, that exceedes maxint from MRTG. I did a simple trick. I 
converted bytes to Mbytes, using:
target[targetname]: oid&oid:community at host / 1024

         So, my maxbytes is now 2097152, supported by MRTG. You should 
notice that I'm going to get the SAME result if I were using bytes. MRTG 
would do this conversion itself.

         I think this simple trick can be used in other situations ..... at 
least worked for my Free RAM.
