Sorry to nag, but no one knows?
Figured I'd be opening myself to a frenzy of RTFM flaming, much has changed since I last spent any measurable time with Linux. I guess this is a good thing.
How 'bout automatic execution of scripts? I've made an executable containing the various iwlan/dhcpd invocations to get my WEP-enabled wlan connectivity, I could add the modprobe mmc_h5400 to this same script and so will look into how's/why's of automatic script execution. This seems kinda sloppy, please let me know if there are additional suggestions.
