how to load modules at startup


I am currently using fedora A.K.A. rh 10 beta. Can somebody please tell me how to get fedora to load the module for my wireless network card when it boots up. its the second network card on my machine so its eth1 and it is a netgear MA 311 with the prisim II chipset. Right now every time i boot up into Fedora, I have to go into root and type "/sbin/modprobe orinico_pci"

Hi

I'll move this to the Fedora forum so you can get a specific answer, however, generically, to get something loaded at startup you would:
place, with full path, the command to execute in a file called rc.local located in or near /etc
Upon reboot, it will autoload whatever application/program you referred to.

Moving to Distributions - Fedora

Cool
