Neither. Whatever is most convenient for you.
if you want it in the kernel, just select the proper driver.
If you want a module and need to add an insmod command, here's how it can be done:
# Begin $rc_base/init.d/network - Network Control Script
# Based on ethnet script from LFS-3.1 and earlier.
# Rewritten by Gerard Beekmans - email@example.com
case "$1" in
and the rest of the network script as normal
