I am brand spanking new to linux, so please help me.
I'm running Fedora 5 build 2.6.17-1.2187.FC_5. I am following instructions from: I have the ACX111 chipset in a Linksys WPC54Gv2.0 PCMCIA Card. I successfully D/Led and built acx-20060521 and acx.ko lit my card right up. and the card worked just fine. The problem is that my wife also uses my lappy. I tried to place a script into the boot sequence that would run - /sbing/insmod /.../acx.ko. I got the script to run at appropriate times in the boot sequence and both my eth0 and wlan0 were able to get connected, but it was a static ip for the wlan0. I don't want to statically set up the card because I like to travel and I hate to try and remember what I've done and how to fix it!
Now for the second part of the problem - how do I /sbin/rmmod /.../acx.ko at shutdown? The WiFi card is continually scanning during shutdown and causing shutdown to take forever. Where can I insert the line /sbin/rmmod/ /.../acx.ko to get the module to unload early in the shutdown sequence? Thank you for reading this, I know it's long, but I wanted to be clear.

i dont know location for system scripts to do this offhand, but what about a script you shutdown with manually?
create a text file, chmod to make it executable (chmod 777 scriptname), the contents say

rmmod "whatever"
shutdown now

create a shortcut to it on your desktop and just un it to shut down the computer.

I had done that, but this system is shared by my wife and I and I was looking for something more automatic. Thank you for the input.
