I modified the mrtg-rrd.cgi use lib to point to where my rrds.pm file is.
Now I get the page but it does not display the graphs. What do i need to
check for now?

mrtg-rrd requires that you put the config files you want to see specifically
in the .cgi file itself. Then, you access the page by:
The index page generated by mrtg-rrd.cgi uses the same daily graphs as the
detailed pages do, whereas 14all uses a smaller, legendless graph (at least
by default - is this changeable?).
The output from mrtg-rrd is a little easier on my eyes, though probably a
little less precise (?). I actually like it better. However, the (perceived)
precision and the ability to specify config files in the url were so
important to us that we are using 14all instead, until we figure out how to
modify mrtg-rrd to accept url parameters or write our own cgi.
Also, using mod_perl it seems like 14all might be a little faster than
mrtg-rrd. I don't know if I have FastCGI set up correctly though, so it may
be using 'normal' cgi. mrtg-rrd quit working altogether when I installed
mod_perl and told it to handle all .cgi files.
