[mrtg] Publishing mrtg to default website - Microsoft IIS

I suspect this may be more of a Windows IIS question than an mrtg one, but
I'm not sure where exactly the solution to my problem lies. I got mrtg
installed as a complete newbie, and after decoding the documentation have
it running on a W2K server box. If I go to the "workdir"
(c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mrtg) I specified in cfgmaker, lo & behold I have a
bunch of html & png files, amongst other things. If I double-click an html
file, I see traffic graphs for that interface. So far so good.
Now for the not so good news: cannot get to see this info if I try to access
the "website" represented by this folder. Some info:
1. This machine is also running Norton Anti Virus for Exchange, which has
its own built in webserver for configuration. This is apparently not
configurable, so I changed IIS to use port 8080 to avoid the conflict. Seems
to be OK, see next point...
2. The default website specified in IIS is <c:\inetpub\wwwroot\> which
doesn't have a default page - this is fine, there is no need to access this
directory. [I managed to create a basic "default.html" file, and when I use
Internet Explorer to open http://servername:8080 <http://servername:8080/>
I see that file.] Now I
would like to just go to http://servername:8080/mrtg and see my mrtg
graphs - or am I barking up the wrong tree here? (I also tried changing
default website to <c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mrtg> but... see next point!
3. However mrtg doesn't appear to generate a "default" or "index" page. If
in the IIS config, documents tab, I point to one of the html files, then
when I browse to the url in (2) above, I also can see all the graphs -- for
that one interface.
It has been many many years since I last saw a real live mrtg webpage so I
don't recall the details, but surely there must be some "top level" html
file somewhere that would allow click-through to the various interfaces'
