How can I make usbcore etc. boot?

I'm sorry, I'm beginner. I use Mandrake 10.1 and always when I restart system I have to do modprobe usb-uhci, usbcore and cd-acm , it will not boot automaticly. Also, I have to do mknod /dev/ttyACM0 c 166 0 every time I start system, to be able to connect internet with my USB modem. How can I make it to it automaticaly?

Also is it possible to connect internet by a non-root user? But if I do pppd call xxx by normal user, it will say: command not found.

Thank you for your support.

To load modules at boot time you need to enter the module names, one per line in /etc/modprobe.preload

The modules will probably do the mknod stuff for you, else you'll need to stick the command in a startup script somewhere.

To be able to connect as a non-root user you need to make the pppd program executable by non-root users. Try chmod 755 /path/to/pppd

Also, make sure the pppd program is in your PATH. You can also use a frontend such as KPPP if you prefer a graphical interface.

Hope this helps!
