how to load a module at boot time


Hello,

I looked for it everywhere, but didn't find, how to load a module at boot time, i.e. what to do with the command 'modprobe vfat' in the file /etc/modules.conf. I inserted this command directly, but it didn't work.

Thank you.

I'm not a Red Hat user; but I think Red Hat executes everything under /etc/init.d when booting. Try adding your modprobe command (use the full path just to be prudent i.e. /sbin/modprobe) into the /etc/init.d/rc.local file. Check the permissions of rc.local to verify that it is executable.

If you're a former Windows/DOS user, rc.local is equivalent to autoexec.bat
