I put the lm_sensors modprobes at the end of my /etc/rc.local file and
that works fine.
I dont know the details for sure, but I think there's more to it than just
throwing a script in
init.d to get it to start up from there. They need to be linked to a
particular runlevel etc. I better
not ramble anymore - it's been too long since I did it and I'll probably
lead you paddleless up
a creek :)
I still find rc.local the best spot to dump everything extra in - you can
from one FC version to another and all you need then is to copy the one
file - no need to fiddle
all the init.d scripts.
