not sure where i am going wrong but i am getting this error:
./orca: warning: no files found for `find_files' for `group
orcallator' in `../lib/orcallator.cfg'. (see below)

here is what i did: (solaris 8 as root)
1) configured orca w/ only the --html-dir switch set. left everything
else default. make , make install
2) installed all perl modules
3)installed SE toolkit 3.2
4)ran start_orcallator
5) ran ./orca -v ../lib/orcallator.cfg
6) got the following error. i can't figure what exactly i should be
putting in the config file for 'find_files'

Thanx !

error and cfg info below.

here is an excerpt from the cfg file

# base_dir is prepended to the paths find_files, html_dir, rrd_dir,
# and state_file only if the path does not match the regular
# expression ^\\?\.{0,2}/, which matches /, ./, ../, and \./.
base_dir                /usr/local/var/orca/rrd/orcallator

# rrd_dir specifies the location of the generated RRD data files.
rrd_dir                 .

# state_file specifies the location of the state file that remembers
# the modification time of each source data file.
state_file              orca.state

# html_dir specifies the top of the HTML tree created by Orca.
