Thanks to all who replied...

The sad thing is the E420R doesn't have any physical temperature monitoring

So that's that!

I did have a suggestion from Brett Lymn to get the ambient temperature from
inside the enclosure using a serial temperature monitor (e.g.  I will definately
be trying this.

For anyone who's interested, to return the temperature (plus other stuff) on
an E250, V880 etc. use:

/usr/platform/`/sbin/uname -i`/sbin/prtdiag -v

Thanks also to Amit Mahajan and Marco Santoro.
