how to get modprobe to install scsi card at startup?

I have an Initio scsi card that works fine after I run /sbin/modprobe initio after startup. The problem is I would like it to be there without having to log in (this machine is a server.)

I have read the modprob.conf man page and am still confused as to how to do this - any suggestions?

I am running Fedora Core2.

Add to your /etc/modules.conf files to load or in your startup scripts in /etc/rc.d/init.d/

I added a startup script in etc/rc.d/init.d/ that does a modprobe initio. Note I also had to add a line that does a chmod on /dev/sg1 as it mounts it write only to root (perhaps there is a better way to run the modeprobe, but for now it works fine.

Thanks for everyone's help.
