OK, I started the snmpd by running:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/snmpd start

and now, when I try to configure it, I get the following:

[root at gordon run]# ./cfgmaker public at sistec.com.mx
# Add a WorkDir: /some/path line to this file

SNMP Error:
Received SNMP response with error code
  error status: noSuchName

try doing an snmpwalk on your system:
	snmpwalk <host> <community>
which will give you all of the OID's accessible to your snmp agent. If you
can get it to do that, then it should work fine. My guess is that you have a
problem in the community string or that the proper MIBs aren't being loaded.
I dunno much more than that.
