A good place to start is to work out what OID you need to tell MRTG to graph. 
You don't mention what vendor equipment your using, so a good place to start 
would probably be at your vendor's website, or FTP site. Most (good) vendor's 
release MIB's for download so you can work out what OID's your looking for, 
amongst other things. Once you work out the OID of what your looking for, you 
can either use the accompanied "cfgmaker" (found in the "bin/" dir where the 
"mrtg" executable is) or make your own mrtg.cfg (there are many, many examples 
on either the MRTG pages or via Google that show what syntax is needed). Some 
vendors (Cisco) even have their own pages on how to get MRTG working with 
their products.

That's fine, as you'll need httpd running in order to view your MRTG graphs 
once it has collected some data from your routers/servers, etc.
