USB module probing issues


Anyone know how to set up modules.conf so when something tries to access /dev/usb/lp0 (that's my usb printer) it will load the modules: usbcore, usb-uhci, and printer. I am able to get modules like my sound card and ethernet card to automatically probe, but usb is giving me troubles, should I just build them statically into my kernel or is there a way? I don't like typing modprobe

Depending on your distro you can add them to /etc/modules.conf or one of the /etc/rc.d scripts so they load at boot, in slack it's /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.
