Yigal makes a very good point. I actually was being mean-spirited but 
it's best that you not take it that way. :) "Newbie" by the way is 
another word for "beginner."

Questions to mailing lists are also more likely to get answers if you 
show that you've made the effort to find the answer yourself. "I read 
this document but I didn't understand this one section" is more likely 
to get a helpful response than "tell me how to do it". If you have to do 
some background study in order to understand the documentation, folks 
here might even be able to help you with that, maybe give you links to 
helpful documents. But you need to give the MRTG documents a try first.

Best regards,
James Overbeck
