    Quick question on insmod


    hey. i recently installed a network driver for my onboard gigabit ethernet. to make it work every time i boot, though, i have to type "insmod 3c2000.o". is there a way to do this automatically upon boot? thanks.

    Which distribution are you running?
    You could put the command in your rc.local file, but normally you will want it to be run before your ip configuration scripts (/etc/rc.d/rc.inet[1,2] on some distro's).

    you could make a simple script to be loaded in startup like this
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
                 insmod 3c2000.0
                 #end of script
