loading modules at boot
I'm trying to load a module at boot. I have seached this form for the awnser, but I found not thread to solve my problems.
The problem is that the files that people at talking about in those threads, arn't there on my system. I don't have a rc.d directory in /etc, I don't have a rc.local file and the file in /etc/rc.boot/boot.local doesn't seem to do any thing. How do I make a module load at boot? I know there is /etc/modules.conf file, but arn't only alliases defined in this file?
I did do "man rc.boot". It told me that the rc.boot directory is obselete, and that I should use the rcS.d directory instead. But putting my boot.local script in there did'nt help. In the readme file in that directory it says the files in /etc/rcS.d are all symbolic links to scripts that are executed at boot. But how do I make such a script?
I'm using debian woody.
