Well, if it is anything like SE750x boards, you need to first setup the
entire BMC system using the Intel CD (that runs Windows :P) before it
will do anything useful.
After that is done, you *can* access the sensor data though IPMI, and even
reconfigure the BMC from Linux. There is even an lm-sensors module for
accessing IPMI sensor data. It is slow, but it works. Mostly :P
I don't recall where I found the IPMI sensor module anymore, though.
Maybe it is even packaged in sid/sarge nowadays. I think it was OpenIPMI
or something like that.
