We have that. lm_sensors+cron+gmond. Nice little XML stream on every node
with every other nodes temps. One can keep a range of tolerance for cpu0, 
cpu1, motherboard, and disk temps and shutdown whenever you need to. 

a netbotz would be cooler though. i'd still use the lm_sensors+cron+gmond
and still have the netbotz as a toy..:)
