Data lm_sensors? hardware monitoring?

ok ok ok, this is my third post on the day I become a member. I should stop. I'm sure all my questions are in the wrong forums. I'm sorry.

my question is about lm_sensors, and hardware monitoring.
I have the goods, lm_sensors.tar.gz, and i2c.tar.gz
and I'm rather confusled. could someone please hold my hand through this? I need someone with some experience with hardware monitoring...
or something.
thanks

CPU & Memory still not working...

well, I did a bunch of stuff, and it's still not working.
I've pretty much given up at this point, since the program tells me my chip is at -68deg C, I think it's pretty messed up. the other temperatures it outputs are 127deg C, and some other really messed up numbers.
if anyone wants to tell me what to put where, and what files to edit how, feel free to reply.
I have an athalon 1.1GHz if that helps.
thanks

OK, first question... why are you so concerned about hardware monitoring? Are you overclocking or something?

Second, if you're only worried about CPU/mb temps, you should be able to get those out of your bios...

And what OS are you running? Many distros of Linux come packaged with hardware monitoring software. You just have to know where to look.
