I had to reinstall, and for some reason my nic card wasn't found during the install. If I turn on hotplug it finds the nic card, but the sound doesn't work and everything crawls. If I turn off hotplug sound works great but no nic card. I know that the driver is a eepro100 is there somewhere I can put it where it will find it during boot and I can turn hotplug back off?

if hotplug is what is causing your problem and you know what modules you want loaded. you could either write in your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file modprobe modules name. or you could uncomment your module autoload file, which should be named something like /etc/modules.autoload, or /etc/rc.d/rc.modules or something.

I did add it to rc.local but it doesn't work. When configured like that it doesn't come up at boot. I can run ifconfig eth0 up
then it comes up but since it is dhcp it doesn't come up with an ip so I then run
then it comes up with IP but then I have no dns then I have to edit resolv.conf
there really has to be a better way.

rc.modules is fine
Yes you can disable hotplug and load manually from rc.modules everything you need.
