as above. list modules one per line in /etc/modules

however- that worked perfectly for me with the 2.4.x kernel. I just "upgraded" to the 2.6.0 kernel, and that doesn't seem to be working like it should. Specifically, I'm trying to get the module uhci-hcd (for usb stuff) to load at boottime, and it won't... so my usb mouse doesn't work until I manually load the module after booting. the init scripts still seem to look for /etc/modules (unless you have a file named /etc/modules-2.6 or similar).
