[lm-sensors] Difficulty with ASUS P5B W83627DHG - Error inserting w83627ehf

I've read all documentation, FAQ, wiki & archived mailing list posts
since Dec 2006 plus google'd extensively but still I cannot find any
way to get lm-sensors to work on this board, so I'm coming to the
mailing list or help.

I'm running openSUSE 10.2, kernel, x86_64.

I have sysfs as recommended for 2.10.2:

# rpm -qav *sysfs*

# sensors --v
sensors version 2.10.2 with libsensors version 2.10.2

After a make user, su, make user_install then sensors-detect I get the

Driver `w83627ehf' (should be inserted):
  Detects correctly:
  * ISA bus address 0x0290 (Busdriver `i2c-isa')
    Chip `Winbond W83627DHG Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)

But when I attempt to modprobe w83627ehf:

# modprobe w83627ehf
FATAL: Error inserting w83627ehf
No such device

Does this driver really support the DHG chip ? I would have thought a
file named 'w83627dhg.ko' would have perhaps come with lm_sensors
2.10.2 to copy into the kernel source tree ?

Any ideas ? Again apologies if I'm asking a simple question however I
just can't seem to get it working or find an answer to this problem ..
