    what are you modprobing?

    if you do this:

    #modprobe Driver

    just do this:

    # echo modprobe Driver >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local
    # chmod a+x /erc/rc.d/rc.local

    assuming rc.d i is your init scripts directory, which is most likely is.

    I Did That Already But I Dont Think Its A Very Wise Idea, I Just Wanna Add The Driver To The Modules So That I Can Take It Out Of The rc.local file and it would still work...
    its a marvel yukon gigabit Onboard adapter and when i say /sbin/modprobe sk98lin it picks it up and everything is hunky dorey. So how do i add that so i dont have to modprobe in the rc.local file.

    Thanx For The Quick Reply

    look in rc.modules and uncomment it or add it. That is where all the modules are listed and loaded and is run before the rc.inet1 and rc.inet2 which then take care of IPs and daemons. Good luck!
