Hoping someone can correct me, but I think you're SOL. OMSA does not  
support most of the SC series - they're cheap, budget hardware(!)
I support an SC440 and have never got lm_sensors or IPMI to work  
(using OpenSUSE 10.2 if it matters - due to be upgraded to 11.1  
sometime soon). The fans, temperatures and case intrusion data do show  
up in the BIOS.
