SCMS question(s)

I've read some overviews/user manual/... about 
SCE and, in particular(especially), SCMS, and it looks for me 
that it's the best choice today (I looked also on bWatch,
CMS, SGI PCP).           

But few SCMS-2.0 features are not clear for me just now.
I'll be very appreciate if somebody will help me w/answers. 

1) I have PIII Tualatin CPU's on frontal cluster node 
but Athlon MP on compute nodes. The documentation 
says that I must have equal "kinds" of CPUs. 
Is it "strong" requirement ? What really 
will not work in SCMS in my case ? 

2) HARDWARE plugin for cms_rms has the possibility 
to control fan speeds and temperature values. 
How it's organised ? Is it work through lm_sensors 
package or directly ?
