startup question


Is there a file that works like autoexec.bat? Also would it be wise to put an "insmod" line in it to load a driver for my 2nd NIC? I added the alias line in my modules.conf but Linux doesn't accually see the module unless I run insmod. Also, after I run insmod and I run lsmod it sees eth0 and eth1 however if I go into X(gnome) after that and bring up the network device configuration tool it only sees eth0, any advice is appreciated

i guess you can say linux's equivalent to autoexec.bat is the startup scripts.. redhat they are located in the /etc directory under rc.0 - rc.6... etc..

i'm sure most people would rather you didn't associate *nix with windows conventions but you will probably want /etc/rc.local

I didn't mean to imply that, however I couldn't think of a better way to describe a startup script, :|
