need insmod to load e1000 driver on boot


I need to find where to place the insmod command: "insmod e1000" so that the driver for my 2nd network interface card will load on boot/reboot.

It varies from distro to distro. In Debian, put a line with the name of the driver in the file /etc/modules, like so:

e1000

It's that simple. To find it in your distro, you can try the command

find /etc -name 'modules*'

to get a list of possible candidates for where to put that line. If you tell me what distro you're using, I can help out more.

Hi mpeg4codec -

Sorry, I should have said in the original request that I am running Red Hat Linux 7.1 kernel 2.4.20...

it is located in /etc/modules.conf
add a line like this:
Code:
alias eth0 e1000
if u have an alias eth0 for another NIC, use eth1 for e1000

after that u can configure your network following command:
Code:
netconfig -d eth0
good luck.
