Define monitor.  Do you need to just ping it to see if it's turned on or
do you need more of the internal stuff, like disk space, network
traffice, cpu load, etc?

The .cfg file for what?  The mrtg .cfg files are different for each
device monitored.  At a minimum they need different target names for
storing the data from the device.

Also, it appears you are asking about monitoring desktop computers, but
you have not specified what OS they are running.  Setup does vary by OS.
