This has been stated repeatedly, and it *DOES NOT WORK*. The MIBS for 
other options work fine, but for any of the hrStorage operations they 
fail. I have the same MIBS listed as cfgstoragemaker uses to generate 
the files, snmpwalk works fine, the settings are there.

This used to work with RHEL 4. I need either someone comfortable with 
debugging MRTG's perl, or a tool to include to turn the symbloc OID's 
into numerical OID's for me.
