hi amos,

i really like the idea of using Object Values instead of OIDs ... but as 
i say, i've had trouble stringing together the MIB dependencies

still, if you're just using MIB-II and HOST-RESOURCES-MIB, perhaps you 
can pull it off ... i seem to recall doing just that, for a while ... 
but then i started adding Cisco gear and Nokia gear and Altiga gear ... 
and although i thought i had all this MIB dependencies worked out and 
listed on my LoadMIBs: line, i still ran into errors

yes, snmptranslate is our friend ...

anyway, how about yanking that leading dot in the Target line?

Target[IP_DriveC]: hrStorageSize.1:community at IP - 
hrStorageUsed.1:community at IP
