Supposedly one can do this with lm-sensors, but I haven't been able to
get that to work correctly with any recent kernels.  You can also get
voltage, temperature and fan speed data using mbmon, but the numbers
sometimes look strange (on one of my computers it shows 201 deg C and 
if that was true I suspect it would have failed long ago).
