I am attemping to run mrtg...so far it looks as though I have successfully
installed mrtg.... (my problem is that I am not familiar enought with apache
to know how to access mrtg from the browser). I have nagios running on this
server and can browse to http://localhost/nagios...  but when I try to
browse to http://localhost/mrtg  nothing happens. I think I need to know how
to tell apache where mrtg is...

I know this is a really basic question but I have no other resources to ask
no colleges, etc
