Automating modprobe?
 
How can I get it so that my box automatically performs "modprobe usb-uhci" and "modprobe usb-storage"? It would really help, because then I can use my usb jumpdrive or whatever you want to call it, more easily. Plus, it would also allow my family to use it too, because they wouldn't remember how to do commands like modprobe....

you can add them commands to a startup file such as rc.local, or rc.sysinit for example, if they exist...

probeall usb-uhci
