Autoloading modules


Well, I had this problem with my laptop's CDROM that I can fix by loading cdrom.o with insmod before I try to mount it.

My question is, is there a file I can put this insmod command into to load the cdrom.o module every time I boot up? It'd save me some typing, and the autmounting in GNOME would work again.

Do I have to recompile my kernel with this module? How would I do that?

if its listed in your modules.conf file then you can uncomment it out and it should load at startup..

what distro are you using might help us out as well ?

Red Hat 7.2.

*Super Newbie Mode ON*
By the way, how would the distribution make much of a difference here? Is there no "autoexec.bat" that I can put the insmod command in?

some distributions have different means of loading modules.. but most will load just fine if you uncomment the modules.conf file in the /etc direcotry. there is no such thing as a autoexec.bat file in linux either..
