Default Hardware monitor for ubuntu 11.10?

So I'm setting up a smp rig for folding but I can't seem to be able to find a hardware monitor for ubuntu that works(I'm able to install) does anyone have any suggestions or possibly a link to a hardware monitor? All I really need is to monitor the cpu temp.

P.S. I'm an ubuntu noob as of now so a guide to installing the program would be helpful too.

If you just want something simple there is something called xsensors that will give you cpu core temps. it is available in the software centre i think.

Here's the Ubuntu guide for lm-sensors: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SensorInstallHowto
Xsensors and a bunch of GUI-based monitors are based on lm-sensors, which is what actually does the work.

If you can deal with using the terminal / console, then you can just type in "sensors" (you don't even have to sudo or be root) and get a dump of all your sensor readings.
I'll note however that some AMD processors need to override a driver before they'll give you a temperature reading: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=120876
