how to load a kernel module at boot time

Hi all,
I have written one simple character driver and i am loading it to the kernel using insmod and removing it using rmmod command and its working fine.
I want to automatically load the same character driver whenever i boot the system. I have found in some articles that we can modprobe the module name and keep it in /etc/module.conf i tried the thing but it is not working. I am using fedora core 4 . so please help me how can i load the module automatically whenever i boot the system.

/etc/module.conf is the old file name. Try /etc/modprobe.conf
