Configuring MRTG on a Windows Box

I'm trying to create a config file for mrtg to monitor utilization for several 3Com switches.  I have a file that monitors one, but I don't quite seem to be getting the hang of setting it up for more.

Does anyone out there know how, or have handy, a config file that will do this?

Thanks...

either run
perl cfgmaker public@10.10.10.1 --global "WorkDir: c:\www\mrtg" --output mrtg.cfg
then perl cfgmaker communityname@machine > mrtg.cfg
for each ional device

or run cfgmaker for every address seperately with --output borderrouter.cfg  then --output cat500.cfg   etc and
create a master file -  mrtg.cfg -  with the lines:
Include: /var/mrtg/routera.cfg
Include: /var/mrtg/routerb.cfg
Include: /var/mrtg/routerc.cfg

etc.
