getting lm-sensors to work for nforce2 board

I am finally able to read the CPU temperature on my nforce2 board using lm-sensors. If you run "sensors-detect" it will tell you that you need the driver w83627hf for an nforce2 board, but if you modprobe that driver it says device not found (with kernel 2.6.7 using the standard Debian configuration). You need to use the driver w83781d instead.
I added the following to /etc/modules:
And added the following to /etc/modprobe.d/aliases:
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
Then I did the commands:
modprobe i2c-isa
modprobe w83781d 
I installed ksensors and I can now read my CPU and case temperature and the values match those reported in the BIOS.
