Then this will definately have to wait til I get a new drive tomorrow I 
hope. I've never installed a raw kernel before, but I don't think 
Mnadrake has any beyond 2.6.3. Any thing special I should know, or just 
do it.:-)

Well, this was run after I tried installing 2.8.7 so I was pretty sure 
it was screwed up. Here's a dump using the 2.8.4 and sensors set to CPU 
1=diode, MB 2=thermistor, and unused 3=thermistor. And the output of 
sensors.

Well, I chnaged sensor type from 2 to 3 several times and ran sensors-s 
in between changes. I assume it changed, as the sensors out would show 
thermistor when it was set for thermistor, and invalid when it was set 
for the diode. I had the ame problem with an earlier version (that came 
with mdk 9.2) but with it I had to set the type during driver 
installation. Yep, I've changed them a bunch.:-)

Had to do some compute lines for voltages and change voltage limts in 
sensors.conf if that's what you mean. Before that most fo them were off 
a lot. Didn't I email you the IT87 part of sensors.conf? I thought I 
did. Oh, I added this for temp1;
compute temp1 @-35 , @+35, because at default it shows 70C and 35C is 
about right for idle.

Well, it wouldn't even boot last time I tried so I booted with Knoppix 
and fscked all the partitions and I'm back running from the HD now. But 
my lost & found folders are full of crap so I've got my fingers crossed 
that it'll hold out for just another day.
