Having just done this, I split my mrtg from one overloaded HPUX box to
two linux boxes, I rebuilt the config files, then used NFS and cpio to
copy *.log over to my new boxes.  Turned up MRTG, watched it rebuild the
*.png and *.old and voila, I had two linux boxes using my six months of
data previously collected.o

More eplicitly:

from my old stats directory I used the following: 

find . -name *.log -print | cpio -pdmvua /home/mrtg/htdocs/stats

That was all it took.
