For the record, this chip (the SC1100) is also found on the Microtik 
RouterBoards.  They had a series of patches which did two things, firstly
they extended the scx200 support to include the SC1100, and then
they added in some lmsensors stuff (which works on 2.4 but not 2.6) for the
nscacb bus and the lm87 which microtik use.  The basic patches have now
been included in the mainstream kernel (as of 2.6.7-rc3), and while I did not
author them but merely brought them to Andrew Morton's attention they
have been entered in my name.

Someone else produced an lm87 driver for 2.6, and I am working on getting
the nscacb driver working (but I have had some other things I had to get done
