Have a look at the config.txt or config.html file.  It is described there.
Look for external program interface or something similar.

Make sure you get SNMP working before starting to think about using it
from MRTG.  Only once you *know* it is working, try to incorporate it
into the config file or else you won't know what fails.

Again, look in the config.txt file to find out *how* to specify arbitrary
OIDs.  Pay extra attention to the lines where it says to use two, no more
and no less.

please write normal lines, about 72 chars max.  73 (as I did) doesn't
really hurt to much but 81 does...
