Thanks!  You probably want to keep the same structure for the percol-*
and/or orcallator-* files and rrd files and just change the Orca
configuration files.

What you want to do is copy your one configuration file into many and
change the line

find_files              @VAR_DIR@/orcallator/(.*)/....


find_files              @VAR_DIR@/orcallator/(.*\.zone1\.comp\.com)/....

so find just a subset of the hosts and change

html_dir                @HTML_DIR@/orcallator


html_dir                @HTML_DIR@/orcallator/zone1

and do this for every group.
