dirs in /proc/acpi empty


I am currently having problems with my toshiba a75s231 overheating, I want to force the fans to run at full speed all the time instead of just when its under high load, I tried the command:

[root@anibis proc]# echo "force_on:1" > /proc/acpi/fan
bash: /proc/acpi/fan: Is a directory

when I checked the dir it is empty, is there a module I need to install to control my fans?

I am currently running FC5 2.6.17-1.2157

thanks in advance

you can try setting your governer to the performance mode
echo "performance" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governer
that should set the fan to full speed and the processor too.
