Edit: I also need to figure out how to install LM_Sensors.....do you know the steps? I tried toread the readme but it didn't help very much...I also noticed that this is a little different then compiling from source so what are the steps?
If you are using KDE superkaramba will add lot's of eyecandy to your desktop...
For gnome look at gdesklets, and for any other wm - adesklets (which i'm using now with XFCE)
If you've got kernel 2.6 lm_sensors modules are already in.
If you are using distro kernel all neccessary modules should be compiled, so you need only to load them
Try load i2c-nforce2 and i2c-isa modules first, then run sensors-detect (from lm_sensors package) - it should detect available sensor chip(s) on your mb and ask you if you want load modules for them on system startup
In config file (/etc/sensors) you can change detailed configuration of your sensors chip (labels etc.)
There is also possibility to configure your ICE fan speed in function of temp.
Just tell if you need more support and i'll try to help
