Thank you thank you thank you!
The bash script worked great! I was going about it all wrong and doing extra steps I see. Although I did learn much more about the grep command in my quest.
I will study your example after I get my system rebooted with the new system running.
I found some examples in my book "From bash to Z Shell - Conquering the Command line." I am assuming you are splitting the line up into words than extracting the last word on each line... than appending it to modules.autoload.d file.
I should have a working Linux system in about an hour. Off to make my fstab file.
How do I post my code in the code box I see all the time?
Oh, I almost forgot. I was using > instead of >> earlier in my installation. This would explain why my make.conf.example is no longer an example file.
I wanted to add my make.conf file into the make.conf.example file for further tweaking and I hammered it.
I used a single > instead of >> in the command below...
# cat /etc/make.conf | grep >> /etc/make.conf.example
