physical configuration question

i would like to run a master hub with temperature sensors connected to it, but i dont want to plug it into my desktop. is anyone doing temp monitoring via snmp with this hardware? is the hardware even capable? how about plugging the master hub into a rabbit and reading the values that way?
The Master Hub doesn't have any real smarts inside so it needs some sort of computer hooked to the serial end to do anything meaningful. You could use a Rabbit but it would take a goot bit of coding because the DS2480 serial to 1-Wire chip in the Master Hub is not super easy to communicate with.
