Graphing DHCP pools

@David Rampage - I am still wrestling with that error when poling
externally. Here is my dhcpd-snmp.conf file structure, as you requested.

# Configuration file for dhcpd-snmp

# Path to the dhcpd.leases file.
# leases: /var/lib/dhcp3/dhcpd.leases

leases: /var/lib/dhcpd/dhcpd.leases

# Definition of the pools
# pool: number, description, from-to, from-to, from-to...

pool: 1, "Market 1",

pool: 2, "Market 2",

pool: 3, "Market 3",

Just to recap, I can run the dhcpd-snmp script locally, and it works. But
if I try an smnpwalk from a remote device, I get the following error:

#snmpwalk -v 2c <host> -c public .
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.21695.1.2 = No more variables left in this MIB View
(It is past the end of the MIB tree)

Do I need to place some dhcpd-snmp specific MIB's somewhere on the server?
