Thanks Paul.

Ok.. So I'm running this on a Windows 2003 server and have one host
running and have used indexmaker to create the index page.

To add more do I simply use the command prompt and type perl Target... ?
This is something I need to get a plain English breakdown on.

If I create individual .cfg files for each host, how does one go about
linking them back to the master? 

Can anyone spare a few minutes giving me a step by step breakdown?

You can do it either way.  It's much more manegable to have each
device in it's own config file IMHO.  You can stil use a single MRTG
process by having one master config file that includes the other

Exampe.  master.cfg
include device1.cfg
include devicd2.cfg

then 'mrtg master.cfg' to start the MRTG process.
