Loading linux modules on Bootup

I have an ATA/133 ide controller card (ITE8212) which I am trying to load on bootup. I can load the driver manually by doing a insmod -f iteraid.o. But when modprobe loads it on boot up it does not force the module to load and hence it does not recognize the controller. Does anyone know how I can force modprobe to load the iteraid driver.

in your /etc/rc.d/ folder. In slack there is a file called rc.local, i believe it is in every distro. In there you can list items to load. If you are running Redhat or Fedora, whatever it is called, there is another option, that has to dxo with rc.* files, but I dont know how to deal with that stuff.

My only hard drive is on this controller, so if the controller does not load the hard drive is not recogized, then I have to boot thro the slackware CD and then load the drivers from the floppy. I have compiled the new kernels, but it still wont work on bootup because I need to force the module to load. I will check out the rc.local file and see if there is a way to force the module

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
