[mrtg] monitoring Windows NT/2000 servers

Ok, I know there is lots of information out there on this subject, but it
all seems to be based (or at least the stuff I'm finding) on using the
Windows version of MRTG.  I currently have MRTG running great on my Red Hat
7.3 box and it is monitoring our Cisco router.
What I'd like to do, is play with the Windows NT/2000 SNMP service and
monitor these servers FROM my Linux MRTG, not from a Windows MRTG.  I don't
necessarily care to use the third-party SNMP4NT and SNMP42K stuff.  I also
don't necessarily care to monitor CPU utilization or most of the other
performance counters.  What I do want to monitor and graph with MRTG is
simply the uptime of a server.  I might want to add the other stuff later,
but for now I just want uptime.  Basically, if I can ping it, it is up.
That's as simple as I want to begin with.
So, are there any web pages out there that describe how to set this up that
you have seen?  Any other tips for me?
Thanks a lot,
