It's easy -- add
to your config file and re-run MRTG. If you're running Linux, and a
common distribution thereof, there probably exists a prepackaged
mrtg/rrdtool distribution. The same goes for *bsd, i'd imagine.

Never used rateup? Sure you have. rateup is the default log
format/graphing style used by mrtg. :)
If you use rrdtool, your graphs will not get generated every time mrtg
runs. You'll have to rely on something that draws graphs on-demand. I
use a hacked version of 14all.cgi (my14all.sf.net) to do my graphing.
But, since my graphing just got a lot more complex, I might switch to
another tool which I can use to separate out different devices.
If I remember right, there's a list of these frontends on the mrtg website.
Hope this gives you a little kickstart. :)
