Saying Y here and creating a character special file /dev/temperature with major number 10 and minor number 131 ("man mknod") will give you a thermometer inside your computer: reading from /dev/temperature yields one byte, the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit. This works only if you have a PCI-WDT501 watchdog board installed.

If you want to enable the Fan Tachometer on the PCI-WDT501, then you can do this via the tachometer parameter. Only do this if you have a fan tachometer actually set up.
