Yes, you have to tune your rrdfile.  Once it is created, just do:

rrdtool tune -i DS0:-5 -i DS1:-5 /path/to/the/rrdfile.rrd

That will lower the minimum from 0 to -5.

I really should hack up that chunk of code to deal with minimums so that
it will create the rrd's correctly the first time.  It's not hard, and
it would be a help when I monitor RSSI on various wireless devices.
