Kernel module not loading at boot

I'm running Fedora Core 3 and am having trouble getting the nvidia drivers to work.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the driver installs an external module which xwindows then uses as a driver for my video card. Initially when I run the install program and restart x everything works just fine until I restart. After restart x will not load and gives an error message something like "module 'nvidia' not found" My take on it is that there is a missing insmod command somewhere in the rc files. Does anyone know where I should insert an insmod command to get the nvidia module to load at boot?

Well I got everything working. I ended up just adding the command 'modprobe nvidia' to a random place in the rc.sysinit file.
