Well, I used a script found in the contrib directory and it worked fine.

A side question, when I used rrdtool 1.27 to create the RRD file, when
trying to use the system rrdtool (on CentOS install) which is running
1.0.50 I got an error that rrdtool couldn't handle version 3 of an RRD

What are the differences between the two? is it worth converting my
RRD originally created with rrdtool 1.0 to a 1.2 version?
