[lm-sensors] lm_sensors + IBM xseries 336

Hi Everyone,

I recently setup a Red Hat 4 based system and wish to get lm_sensors
support. Here is my current setup:

IBM Xseries 336

Basically I checked the Devices section of the wiki to check if my
board is compatible. My board is listed as supported: Intel 82801EB ->
i2c-i801 (pastebin of lspci: http://rafb.net/p/0x7zyL96.html ).

However when I run sensors-detect, I get an error about my vendor
being IBM and that their systems aren't supported (as of my lm_sensors
2.8.7 anyway).

Before I go modifying the sensors-detect script I was wondering if
this is safe to do on this system? The error message from
sensors-detect mentions the thinkpad laptop, however I would assume
that an xseries server would be better supported.

Unfortunately I won't be able to update lm_sensors on this box, so I'm
fairly limited in what I can do.

Any help on this is appreciated,
