[mrtg] add another device to monitor

   In my experience, it's been more managable for me to create config 
files for each switch/router/device I want to monitor.  I also keep the 
rrd databases stored in a seperate directory for each device being 
monitored.  I guess how you want to do it depends on how many devices you 
have to monitor.
