Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

lm_sensors would be just the thing your looking for it ...
to check and see if you already have it installed just type 'sensors' in the terminal
it will say "no sensors found" if it is
then use "sensors-detect" to set it up ..
I'm sorry...I just didn't knew what i2c was and in the documentation it says that I need the i2c package but I found so many different ones that I was confused....
Now it should work...
Thanks very much!
[fedivh@localhost fedivh]$ sensors
Can't access procfs/sysfs file
Unable to find i2c bus information;
For 2.6 kernels, make sure you have mounted sysfs!
For older kernels, make sure you have done 'modprobe i2c-proc'!
As root the same.
I have installed everything like the quick-start manual on the webpage of lmsensors
i2c is already installed with Mandrake 9.2 so all you need to do is use the package manager to add lm_sensors, which is also included with the distro but not installed by default. Then run sensors-detect and edit modules.conf and rc.local to add the lines it'll tell you to add.
