[mrtg] using MRTG with a Cisco Pix 520 firewall

greetings... This may be a silly question, but I've scoured the available
documentation and whatnot and am still not quite sure of the answer...

We are using a Cisco Pix firewall, and I'd like to be able to not only graph
traffic throughput (I've sucessfully used MRTG to do that), but get a
breakdown by subnet (e.g., total bandwidth for 172.16.5.* vs. total
bandwidth for 172.16.6.*).

Is there someone out there who's set up this type of monitoring using MRTG
with a Pix?  Do I need some additional software to parse out the information
I want?  Am I totally on the wrong track?  Basically, I'd like to find a
quick & dirty way to get some basic numbers on bandwidth utilization without
buying an expensive software package (e.g. WebTrends).

any clues would be appreciated...

All parts should go together without forcing.  You must remember that the
parts you are reassembling were disassembled by you.  Therefore, if you
can't get them together again, there must be a reason.  By all means, do not
use a hammer.
