You answered it yourself - MRTG needs 2 variables to graph. if you don't
give it 2, it don' work!

Why not graph 2 separate disk partitions, or perhaps just graph the same
number twice, just to provide a second variable.

Personally I graph 2 partitions. My systems look at the root partition
and the partition most of the applications are installed on.
