another lm_sensors question

Greetings all. Alright, this is starting to drive me nuts. I've been trying to get lm_sensors to work for the past few weeks and have had no luck. It compiles correctly and works just fine until I have to run sensors. When I run sensors (even as root) I get:

Can't access procfs/sysfs file
Unable to find i2c bus information;
For 2.6 kernels, make sure you have mounted sysfs and libsensors
was compiled with sysfs support!
For older kernels, make sure you have done 'modprobe i2c-proc'!

Now I've seen this message on a few other forums before but no one has really figured out the problem (at least mine). I know for a fact that I have sys mounted but I still can't figure out what's wrong. These are the modules that I currently have loaded too: i2c_dev i2c_nforce2 i2c_core i2c_isa.

If anyone has any idea what may be wrong, the help would be greatly appreciated. Oh, here are specs on the system if anyone needs them:
EPoX EP-9NPA3 mobo
Gentoo Linux with 2.6.16 kernel

If any more information is needed I'll respond as soon as possible. Thanks...

Well unfortunately there wasn't anything in there that I haven't done yet. I still can't figure out why I keep getting that error message. Everything is set up correctly in the kernel, I just can't figure out the error.
