It took a while, but I finally found the ones that work on Win2K:

1. Go to http://www.wtcs.org/snmp4tpc/snmp4w2k.htm and download the free 
snmp4w2k-std.zip (unless you need the additional support for the products 
and services that the "Plus" version which  you have to pay for). Unpack 
the executable and install it on the Win2K boxes to be monitored.

2. Copy all of the MIB files installed in \SNMP4W2K-STD\MIBS directory 
(wherever you install the package) to wherever you MIB browser can access 
them. For example, if you use getif, you would put them in the \getif\mibs 
directory, delete the .index file, fire up getif and walk the Win2K box to 
be monitored to find the appropriate OIDs.

3. Here are some MRTG templates that I have used successfully to monitor 
Win2K boxes having found the OIDs I wanted using the procedure above:

Note: I have had to adjust MaxBytes on each box based on its configuration.

Hope that helps.
