  It's not only problem w/Tyan dual motherboards. The problem
exist also w/correct work of Hardware Monitor chips (for work of
lm_sensors it's necessary to do (at the boot) some trick w/BIOS), 
for both 2460 and 2466. Moreover, for Thunder w/Tualatin chips lm_sensors
can't work. May be Supermicro boards are more stable ...
