I found it in /usr/src/linux-2.6.19 ... which apparently it created during
the patch process.  Anyway, I copied the stuff I found there (including
asc7xxx.c) into the right places in the linux-2.6.18.2-34 tree and then
compiled again.  It worked, it built it. Rebooted the new kernel and it
inserted fine.

Sensors doesn't show much:

 sensors
 asc7621-i2c-0-2e
 Adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at 4000
 
 
... but gkrellm's sensor stuff shows five temps (one is the Nvidia GPU
temp), four fans, and all the voltages.  Some of the numbers are wierd, but
I suppose a properly tweaked /etc/sensors.conf should bring that in line.

Thanks!

Michael
