MRTG doesn't create the images, it only creates the html page.
The program "rateup" (or: rateup.exe on windows) creates the
images, it does not generate html.

IOW: you need to run rateup yourself.

It will be somewhat hard to figure out what parameters to give to
rateup.  Simple but effective approach:
- rename rateup to rateup.real
- create a script called rateup
  - this script should write its parameters to a file (append!)
  - this script then calls rateup.real with the original parameters
- run mrtg a few times
- rename rateup.real to rateup
- have a look at the file created by your script

Some parameters feed data to the log files, other parameters generate
an image.

happy hacking!
