Problem getting lm_sensors to function

Well .. I think I did everything right. First let me tell you about my
Motherboard : K7S5A Pro
Sensor Chip set : SiS 950
Distro : Mandrake 10
Kernel : 2.6.3-19mdk
I did the make user and the make user_install that went great. Did
sensor_detect and it found most of the sensors being scanned for. I copied
over that config file to the rc.d/init.d directory.
Here's my dumb question. Was I supposed to put this :
# I2C adapter drivers
# I2C chip drivers
# sleep 2 # optional
/usr/local/bin/sensors -s # recommended
somepalce? I know it said in some rc.* files .. if so which ones? All oif
I did enter those commands manually at a console prompt logged in as root.
Here's what it said to me:
root at alb-69-xxx-xx-xxx dave]# modprobe i2c-isa
[root at alb-69-xxx-xx-xxx dave]# modprobe sis5595
FATAL: Module sis5595 not found.
[root at alb-69-xxx-xx-xxx dave]# modprobe it87
[root at alb-69-xxx-xx-xxx dave]# usr/local/bin/sensors -s
bash: usr/local/bin/sensors: No such file or directory
[root at alb-69-xxx-xx-xxx dave]# /usr/local/bin/sensors -s
it87-isa-0290: Can't access procfs/sysfs file for writing;
Run as root?
I ran menuconfig to see if the sis5595 module was to be created and it is or
should have been. There is a 'M' by it. And the obviously the last error
message where it fcan't access procfs/sysfs file for writing.
What do I need to do now? Or do you need more info? Either way let me know!
Thanks for your help!
