Hi Frank - just returned from vacation - thanks for the reply.

Here's the summary of the sensors that 'sensor-detect' detected:

    Detects correctly:
  * Chip `Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)

However,  it indicated

    Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor...                         Success!
    (driver `to-be-written')
