How to Load Kernel Modules?
I was under the impression the kernel could load the modules it needed on demand. However, when I compile my kernel version 2.6.9 with my network card set as a module, the enternet does not work, but the enternet works correctly if the driver is compiled directly into the kernel. Basically, I thought the kernel used the modules like windows uses dll's. So, my question is: Do I have to manually load my needed modules, and if so how do I find out the modules name? This also directly leads to the question: How do I automate module loading? Thanks and I'm sorry if I soooooooo much a linux noob that you think I should just uninstall the OS.
