hi ya martin

-- i have collected a list of all known 1U chassis manufacturers

-- we support 3 nics... 1 on the motherboard....2 PCI nic cards...
	( 2 riser cards + 2 Intel PILA8460C nics + onboard nic )

-- and yes.. good to see those lm_sensor based temperature measurments...
	- a common way to compare...

have fun
