Sensors not found on Asus A7A266 (Examined/Solved - lm_sensors 2.5.5 Linux 2.4.5)

The A7A266 is an alimagik based board. I'm running the latest bios.

sensors-detect says to use i2c-ali15x3 for device 00:11:0: Acer Labs M7101,
but that fails. syslog shows:
Jun 5 15:23:30 isabelle kernel: i2c-ali15x3.o version 2.5.5 (20010115)
Jun 5 15:23:30 isabelle kernel: i2c-ali15x3.o: ALI15X3_smb region uninitialized
- upgrade BIOS?
Jun 5 15:23:30 isabelle kernel: i2c-ali15x3.o: ALI15X3 not detected, module not
i2c-ali1535 will load just fine, but running sensors reports no sensors found.
under windows, motherboard monitor 5 works with the board just fine, so I'm not
inclined to believe the bios is at fault. --- Some of our drivers support a force_addr argument to
write a base address to the chip, but unfortunately
we have not yet added that support to i2c-ali15x3. Sorry.
You can set the address yourself with 'setpci' if you
feel like looking through the driver to find the address and you are brave.
If you need further assistance email sensors@…
and reference your ticket number.
The i2c-ali1535 driver is the correct one for ALI Magic.
The i2c-alli15x3 is not correct.
Sensors-detect was updated in our 2.6.2 release to try both drivers.
If, after loading i2c-ali1535, no sensors are found, then
whatever sensors you have are not supported by us.
Look at your board for clues, also see our FAQ.
