Sensors wrapup?

  I'm reading through the "old news" and current tickets concerning the
tyan 2466.  Using the difinitive sensors.conf from ticket 941 and the
default "modules options" I get this:

Adapter: SMBus AMD768 adapter at 80e0
Algorithm: Non-I2C SMBus adapter
VCore 1:   +1.69 V  (min =  +1.66 V, max =  +1.82 V)

vid2:     +1.750 V
alarms:   Chassis intrusion detection                      ALARM
          Sound alarm disabled

(I did disable the eeprom as it only gives me a list of how much ram is
in the system).

With this system I've seen people saying they're getting the actual
CPU temps, not just the motherboard temps.  

Can you give a 'wrapup' of what the current set of options for
/etc/modutils/local should be and or any force_subclients?  If you can't
post a "use XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" then a how to find the values would be
great.  I tried a number of different compinations that I dug up in
/proc/ and on the boards but nothing ever changed.  There doesn't seem
to be a difinitive "do this with modutils" or "use these
force_subclients" anywhere I can find just "you need to use

Thanks for all your work,
