I suspect that what is happening is related to the directory that your 
rrd.cgi file is in.  It sounds from your message like you've put the 
rrd.cgi file (the one containing html plus the RRD directives) in the 
web server's cgi-bin directory.  This is a problem.

Here's what happens... the rrd.cgi script runs and creates the graph 
file(s) (also in the cgi-bin directory).  Now your browser tries to 
download the image, but the web server thinks that everything in the 
cgi-bin directory is a cgi program (you make it worse by making the 
image file executable).

The solution is to have your rrd.cgi script in some other directory in 
the doc root.  Add directives to your web server config file to have 
any files ending in .cgi be considered as cgi scripts.  The images 
created will not end in .cgi, so they will be served up as normal image 

Good luck.
