calibrate processor thermometer?


the output of cat /proc/cpuinfo on my machine is as follows:
cpu : 740/750
temperature : 55-57 C (uncalibrated)
clock : 264MHz
revision : 2.2 (pvr 0008 0202)
bogomips : 532.48
machine : PowerBook
motherboard : AAPL,PowerBook1998 MacRISC
detected as : 50 (PowerBook Wallstreet)
pmac flags : 00000009
L2 cache : 1024K unified pipelined-syncro-burst
memory : 256MB
l2cr override : 0xb9110000
pmac-generation : OldWorld


the temprerature range changing of course..
is there a way to calibrate the temperature senor so it gives a more accurate temp instead of a 2 degree range? and can it be configured to display in non metric farenheit as well?

the only way i know of getting an acurate cpu temprature is switching from apm to acpi. i instead run "cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THMO/temperature" and it gives me the degrees in celsius of my laptop
