first step all you have to do is preparation the software what is needed. on the way i will split it into 2 way, ubuntu and enterprise way.

-- ubuntu way --
install it with
$ sudo apt-get install snmpd snmp

make backup and edit file snmp.conf
#mv /etc/snmp/snmp.conf /etc/snmp/snmp.conf_old
#vi /etc/snmp/snmp.conf
this is the sample config of snmp.conf

# First, map the community name (COMMUNITY) into a security name
# (local and mynetwork, depending on where the request is coming
# from):

#  source          community
com2sec local     localhost        public
com2sec localNet   public
com2sec localhost localhost        public
#com2sec readonly  default         public
#com2sec readwrite default         private

# Second, map the security names into group names:

#               sec.model
group MyROSystem v1        local
group MyROSystem v2c       local
group MyROSystem usm       local
group MyROGroup v1         localNet
group MyROGroup v2c        localNet
group MyROGroup usm        localNet
group MyRWGroup v1         local
group MyRWGroup v2c        local
group MyRWGroup usm        local

# Third, create a view for us to let the groups have rights to:

#           incl/excl subtree                          mask
view all    included  .1                               80
view system included  .

also edit file /etc/default/snmpd
# This file controls the activity of snmpd and snmptrapd

# MIB directories.  /usr/share/snmp/mibs is the default, but
# including it here avoids some strange problems.
export MIBDIRS=/usr/share/snmp/mibs

# snmpd control (yes means start daemon).

# snmpd options (use syslog, close stdin/out/err).
#SNMPDOPTS='-Lsd -Lf /dev/null -u snmp -g snmp -I -smux -p /var/run/'
SNMPDOPTS='-Lsd -Lf /dev/null -u snmp -g snmp -I -smux -p /var/run/'
# snmptrapd control (yes means start daemon).  As of net-snmp version
# 5.0, master agentx support must be enabled in snmpd before snmptrapd
# can be run.  See snmpd.conf(5) for how to do this.

# snmptrapd options (use syslog).
TRAPDOPTS='-Lsd -p /var/run/'

# create symlink on Debian legacy location to official RFC path
and restart service
/etc/init.d/snmpd restart

-- enterprise way --
install it using
# yum install net-snmp net-snmp-utils net-snmp-devel
make backup and edit file snmp.conf
#mv /etc/snmp/snmp.conf /etc/snmp/snmp.conf_old
#vi /etc/snmp/snmp.conf
this is a sample of snmp.conf
rocommunity  public
syslocation  "monitor DataCenter"
syscontact  sakti.dwi@localhost
com2sec notConfigUser default public
group notConfigGroup v1 notConfigUser
group notConfigGroup v2c notConfigUser
view systemview included .
view systemview included .
com2sec mynetwork mycommunity
group MyRWGroup v2c local
group MyROGroup v2c mynetwork
group MyRWGroup v2c otherv3user
view mib2 included fc                           
access MyROGroup "" any noauth 0 all none none
access MyRWGroup "" any noauth prefix all all all                              
com2sec notConfigUser default public
com2sec notConfigUser default public                                  
group notConfigGroup v1 notConfigUser
group notConfigGroup v2c notConfigUser

and restart service
 /etc/init.d/snmpd restart

-- cek n jajal --
run this command
#snmpwalk -Os -c public -v 1 system

sysDescr.0 = STRING: Linux localhost.localdomain #1 SMP Sat Nov 7 21:25:57 EST 2009 i686
sysObjectID.0 = OID: netSnmpAgentOIDs.10
sysUpTimeInstance = Timeticks: (925895) 2:34:18.95

sysORID.1 = OID: snmpFrameworkMIBCompliance
sysORID.2 = OID: snmpMPDCompliance
sysORID.3 = OID: usmMIBCompliance
sysORID.4 = OID: snmpMIB
sysORID.5 = OID: tcpMIB
sysORID.6 = OID: ip
sysORID.7 = OID: udpMIB

sysORDescr.1 = STRING: The SNMP Management Architecture MIB.
sysORDescr.2 = STRING: The MIB for Message Processing and Dispatching.
