I installed mbmon on some machines, but on none machine (dell, compaq, 
clone) it seems to work:

No Hardware Monitor found!!
InitMBInfo: Unknown error: 0

Any other suggestions how to monitor temps? Trying envstat doesn't seem to 
work here either, is that because my systems aren't supported or because 
im doing things wrong here? Any other progs that might yield system info 
that might work?
