in Gentoo, custom modules you want to autoload need to be placed in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kenrel-2.X where X is the version of your kernel. if you are using 2.4 then it would bej /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.4.

there i have:

3c59x
ide-scsi

i think because Gentoo uses devfs you really shouldn't edit modules.conf directly, either make your changes in /etc/modules.d or /etc/modules.autoload.d

allow me to re-define my question. How do i modify modules.conf in archlinux (if that matters) to autoload my modules? im nolonger using gentoo but i have successfully modified modules.conf in the past in gentoo, so that certain modules did autoload at boot.
