For linux, snmpget should come with the distribution.  For NT, get GETIF, it's a really useful little utility, and I think snmp4tpc has it for download.  IF you can get that, try to walk the entire system, and you'll be able to easily figure out the problem.  Otherwise, try an snmpwalk and pipe the output to a file, the open it up and look through it for the description of something like cpu or processor.  It's there, you just need to find it.
I would guess if you don't have snmpwalk (which you should), you might be able to do something like:

snmputil walk host public . > temp.txt

Here is the error I get in MRTG

.Haven't got snmpget but use snmputil the error I get there is C:\>snmputil get host public .
Error: errorStatus=2, errorIndex=1

on something like the server name I get the following results.
 C:\>snmputil get host public .
Variable = system.sysName.0
Value    = String host

Any Ideas

Where can I get hold of snmpget for linux or NT?

Thanks for the help
