There are some default MIBs preloaded into MRTG.  MIBs are essentially the english (words vs. numbers) representation of OIDs.  If you use the OID, you never need to worry about the MIB.  On the other hand, if you like InOctets vs. . (I know that's not right, but it gets the message across), use the MIB.  You just need to define the MIB in the cfg file you will be using it in.
