I just compiled a new 2.6.7 kernel from source on my slackware 10 laptop. After installation, however, no modules were loading at boot time. I recently downloaded the bmc5700 driver for my bcm5705m ethernet card, and got it working correctly. However, every time the computer starts, I need to manually run insmod to get it loaded. Is there a way I can get it to do this automatically?
Also, is there a standard convention for where you put drivers once they have been built?
