Dale, once again, thanks for the package.  I've started to rely a lot on
those graphs but not just for MailScanner.  I noticed the other day when I
logged in from work that the cpu utilization was stuck at 100%.  Turned
out that my faxmodem had become wedged for some reason (never had that
happen before??).

However. I found that the amount of detail on the ethernet chart to be too
much for the resolution being used.  Also, I have no idea how to use the %
data.  It doesn't make any sense to me.  I've commented out the option
line in mailscanner-mrtg.cfg so that it doesn't bother with the % and just
uses the default data.  I find that more useful.

Thanks again for your package!
