Forcing the it87 chip with i2c-isa driver for sis630

First of all I want to say thanks for your effort to do a great linux

Well I own a laptop clevo 2200 with sis630 integrated mainboard. I have
installed Debian Sid on it and I wanted to have the sensors up&runing
because this laptop is running to hot.

I installed the lm_sensors 2.6.3 and I wasted a lot of time and effort
to configure any driver and any chip sensor for this motherboard.
First of all Sis630 has a sis950 Chip for sensor detection because of it
I force the it87 to go with i2c-isa driver.

I do this:
modprobe i2c-isa [done]
modprobe it87 force_it87=9191,0x290[done!]

and the message for command sensors:

debian:~# sensors

Temp1/MB:     -1°C  (min =   -1°C, max =   -1°C) ALARM
Temp2/CPU:    -1°C  (min =   -1°C, max =   -1°C) ALARM
Temp3:        -1°C  (min =   -1°C, max =   -1°C) ALARM

is this correct? I forced the it87 but all the sensors are blank?
I need more configuration for know the cpu temp?

The problem is that I don't know if I'm doing it correctly...isn't it?
thanks for your time.
