Wink how to automate - modprobe usbserial - in linux (fedora)


Dear Experts,

I have three types of USB wireless modems to work with fedora.

All 3 modems works fine with the (modprobe usbserial - wvdial)
procedure.

Now What I have to do is on every boot, is probing the usbserial
driver with the respective product and vendor IDs , as below.

for first modem:

" modprobe usbserial vendor=0xYY product=0xZZ "
(where 0xYY and 0xZZ is IDs of first modem)

for inserting 2nd modem:

" rmmod usbserial "
then
" modprobe usbserial vendor=0xAA product=0xBB "
(where 0xAA and 0xBB is IDs of 2nd modem)

and so on,


I learnt that if I put this in rc.init , then modprobing
will be doing automatically, but this method will work only for
a single type of modem. How can I automate the procedure for
3 modems (say n modems)


Thanks in advance ..
