Use Gkrellm it's awesome. Especially to see whats going on a computer you don't have physical contact with.

Under FC3, using KDE, I've found "KDE System Guard" (in the "System Tools" menu) very effective. (Especially after I'd installed the "sensors" package and run "sensor-detect" to get my ASUS P4P800S-X board sensors identified. [It did take me a few days to notice that the "-detect" was part of the command name, not an option. But, when I did, everything worked fine.])

as a command-line tool is quite nifty ... in conjunction
with watch you can quite easily keep an eye on the
machine state with a very small performance penalty.

If you want to monitor more than one machine
mrtg and nagios spring to mind ... or eEMU (which
unfortunately isn't freely available anymore - I've
seen an older version as debian package, though).
