Hi Jacqueline,

You *need* to be in the "root" lm_sensors directory when running that

The values you pass after "make" are known as "targets". They are a way
to tell make what we want it to do. When you type only "make", a default
target is used. Each project is free to name its targets any way it
wants. Our default target is fine for 2.4 kernels, but not for 2.6
kernels (the default target makes too many things), so we added a "user"
target for 2.6 kernel, which only build the user-space tools.

Don't worry about your system, you cannot break anything with these

All you have to do is run "make user" and "make user_install" in the
correct directory: the lm_sensors root directory.

Hope that helps,
