So you'd be ftp'ing the data every 5 minutes?  That's ugly...

Basically, you want to put the html and graphic files on another machine.

You *may* want to consider how the data will be viewed.
Do you need near time graphing?  If not, you could always copy the 
graphs once a day, once an hour or something.  If it's only a few 
MB worth of info, it might not be bad, but that seems dangerous, and 
just begging for data corruption.

The mrtg is a win 2000 machine, the webserver is a cobalt webserver (apache).
We don't like to map any drives, so we don't want to share any drive with
nfs, samba or win2000 share or what else.
(We have the webserver in the dmz and our mrtg inside our network and our
security police does not allowed sharing drives between dmz and inside).

Perhaps-one way seems to use ftp and a script 
But I think it is time to study rrd stuff...
