Maybe I should add, that these images are just used to display a logo of the 
monitored device in the overview and in the maps. They are not needed to run 
nagios/icinga itself.
The images contains generic network symbols, vendor logos (I guess almost of 
them are trademarked), OS logos (trademark/copyright) and even product images 
(copyright problems).

Cheers, Jan.
