few examples...create cnfs-buffer.cfg, follow similar format:

WorkDir: /usr/local/www/data/nntp/mrtg/something/somewhere
                                                                                IconDir: /mrtg/icons/
Colours[cnfs-NAME1]: specify_your_own_color
WithPeak[cnfs-NAME1]: wmy
Target[cnfs-NAME1]: `/usr/local/news/bin/cnfsstat -m NAME1`
Title[cnfs-NAME1]: BUFF1 Usage
Options[cnfs-NAME1]: growright gauge
YLegend[cnfs-NAME1]: BUFF1
ShortLegend[cnfs-NAME1]: MB

cut'n'paste & rename for all your buffs... 

something like this would produce nice looking graphs of your cnfs buffs,

for overview, if you're running buffindexed:
WorkDir: /usr/local/www/data/nntp/mrtg/overview

Target[overview-BUFF]: `/usr/local/etc/mrtg/`
MaxBytes[overview-BUFF]: 100
Title[overview-BUFF]: BUFF1 Usage
Options[overview-BUFF]: growright gauge
YLegend[overview-BUFF]: Overview Buffers
ShortLegend[overview-BUFF]: %
PageTop[overview-BUFF]: <H1>Usage of Overview Buffers</H1><BR><TT>overview</TT>

/usr/local/etc/mrtg/ file:

echo "100"
/usr/local/news/bin/inndf -n | awk '{print $1}'
echo "0"
echo "overview"

hope this helps :)
