	Finally got lm_sensors working again after whatever happened when
I installed the cvs. Had a heck of a time getting via686a to work. Keeped putting
in only lm80 for some reason. Module for via686a was loaded but sensors wouldn't
use it for some reason.  Then when would take out via-pro and lm80 it would say
no sensors, when ran  'sensors'.

Long story so won't bore you, but finally got it working, gkrellm2 working with it also again,
just like before. 

I did notice one thing that might be important during my trouble after the cvs and trying
to get it working again. 

sensors -s     

did work with the lm80 and Smsbus.  Just not with the via686a, so maybe what Philip
said about the ISA is correct.

Sorry it took me a few days to get back with you, but have to work the weekends.
