[lm-sensors] Getting sensor information from HP ProLiant DL360

our new machine arrived today and I'd like to get as much information 
out of it as possible. I'm using Debian Lenny with a 
2.6.26-2-vserver-amd64 kernel, arch is x86_64 .

I've installed lm-sensors (sensors --version reports sensors version 
3.0.2 with libsensors version 3.0.2 , package is 1:3.0.2-1+b2 ) and ran 
"sensors-detect"; attached is the output.

"sensors" only reports one information for me:

$ sudo sensors
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +8.3°C  (crit = +31.3°C)

I'm missing other temps, fans, CPU, etc. and I'm wondering how I could 
improve the situtation; I couldn't find out much what the current status 
of lm-sensors support for my machine is. I looked at 
http://lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices and only found one reference to HP 

   SMSC 	 SCH4307 	 yes 	 	 	 	 (2010-02-11) Super I/O with hardware 
monitoring capabilities. Used in HP servers. Datasheets only available 
under NDA, no driver yet."

I guess it applies to me, but I'm not sure?

"sensors" suggests to load the module "ipmisensors", I search turned up 
http://bmcsensors-26.sourceforge.net/ for the 2.6 kernels. However, the 
patch available from 
(link for ">=2.6.17" kernels) does not apply, and the other link 
"impisensors-experimental" to 
http://bmcsensors-26.sourceforge.net/ipmisensors/ doesn't work.

Are there any other options?
