I have a T42, running Hardy Heron, and my fan doesn't go > ~1900 rpm. When trying to rip a DVD using handbrake (for person backup of course), the computer shuts down stating that the CPU temp has gone too high. I am unable to increase the fan speed using the command to change the setting in /proc/acpi/ibm/fan. It changes the setting, just not the fan speed... I can stop the fan and start it, it just doesn't seem to go fast enough.
