Check out http://netophilia.net/main.html

I have a few things there you may be interested in.

First, the 'snmpd on *nix' section will help you get snmpd up and running 
on the UNIX box

the 'oids' section will give you some oids you can use to monitor the box 

As for exact instructions on installing mrtg itself, look at the mrtg home 
page (http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/mrtg/) and look for the 
section titled 'UNIX MRTG Installation Guide).' It should give you the 
instruction you need. It includes links to all of the stuff you need (perl, 
gd, libpng, zlib). Most of these come with pretty good instrcutions on 
installing them, but feel free to ask me any specific ?s you have (I LOVE 
to do anything I can to help people switch from Windows to a real OS :)
