Autoloading of Modules


Can someone tell me how I can have the ide-scsi module loaded automatically during boot? Right now, I have to manually load the module after I reboot (modprobe -a ide-scsi) every time.

Add the module to load to the end of the file /etc/modprobe.preload. The quickest way would be like so
# echo "ide-scsi" >> /etc/modprobe.preload
I'm not sure how to use the -a modifier here, but this will load that module on boot.
