Thanks for the hint. I'll try the supermon.

Well... on sis630 (pcchips 787cl+) lm_sensors don't show anything with
linuxbios, while with AMIBIOS they do show lots of things.
A little off-topic... I was quite amazed when I found that on EPIA
ESP5000 there is a monitoring chip detected by lm_sensors, but no actual
sensors present. :) Anyone knows if that is really so, or is that just
a bug of lm_sensors?
