Thanks for your help.

Well, I installed the rddtool and get it working with mrtg to collect data
only.  Now, I have a problem in setting up my apache server to display the

I changed the httpd.conf for

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/home/httpd/cgi-bin/"
<Directory "/home/httpd/cgi-bin/">
    AllowOverride None
    Options ExecCGI
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

to point to where the 14all.cgi script is. I also restart the httpd server.
When I point my browser to the cgi script, I have the text content of the
cgi script rather than a traffic graph.

Please help...
