I think "lm-sensors" includes a "fancontrol" package, but be careful if 
you want to manually set the fan speed, because this parameter should be 
automatically adjusted by ACPI and cpufreqd.

Ideally, running "acpi -V" will display more info about your thermal 
zones and current temperature trip points.
