Hi, I have RedHat 7.1 installed on my Thinkpad 240 currently. You will 
not have any problems if you do not install the lmsensors package. I am 
not sure where it is at in the install proceedure-- I have not installed 
RedHat in a while-- but you can select packages individually before 
proceeding with the installation. Do this and do not install this 
package. Red Hat will inform you if the package has any dependencies 
that it cannot install that use this. Just do not install them.

P.S.: If you do install it it will not automatically damage your laptop 
as it is not loaded into the kernel. I actually have it on my machine-- 
but don't use it. This is dangerous though, and is only a temporary 
situation-- as I was in a hurry when I installed it. A quick web search 
reveals more details about how to install this and I know there are many 
responses to this in this mail archive. Hope I helped a little bit, 
sorry I could not help more.
