It depends on what you have mrtg set up to monitor.  You can monitor the
machine mrtg is running on but it might not be very exciting.  You probably
want to monitor a router or something that is actually passing network

Your questions lead me to think that you may have installed mrtg, but you
don't actually have it up and running yet, is that correct?  The easiest
thing to do is just point cfgmaker at the router you want to monitor, then
use indexmaker to create a .html page of daily graphs.

Since you have a few days before you need to start, here's some leisure-time
reading for you:

And, of course, the "Unofficial FAQ" at http://faq.mrtg.org/.

If you can't find the answer to your questions there, ask back on the list
(after you've checked the archive, of course.) ;)
