Config maker will setup monitoring for the ports on the switch, but it 
won't have a clue as to what is attached to which port on the switch.  
You need to hand edit the files made by config maker for that information. 

Includes are better than one big mrtg.cfg file, esp if you grow and 
decide to use routers2cgi and rrd later.
