Question permanent module options: where to set?


It seems the problems with my external HD's Firewire/USB case chipset can be solved by loading sbp2 with the serialize_io=1 option.
How can I configure sbp2 to always load with this option?
How can I configure any module to load with some option(s)?

Thanks
Stefan

If running a 2.6 kernel then create a file /etc/modprobe.d/firewire with this for the contents.

Code:
## Added by me for correct firewire detection
options sbp2 serialize_io=1
If 2.4 kernel then create /etc/modutils/firewire with the same contents then run update-modules to have the information entered in to the /etc/modules.conf. Now reboot to see if it works the same should work for any module you need to load with options.
