How to install module on boot time?

I have tried install fsam7400 -module many ways.

Is there any way install that module on boot time? I'm very newbie for modules... I tried add one line to modprobe.conf -file:

install fsam7400 /sbin/modprobe fsam7400

that won't work. WLAN didn't work, and when trying "modprobe" affterwards, konsole crashes. Removing line fix things, but I have every boot time manually probe that fsam module. I don't wanna do that...

No that's not the right way to go about installing a module. Exactly what "many ways" have you tried?

You need to compile the module and install it. Being as you're using SuSE you should be able to install this module using YaST.

The big question is does your kernel support this?

I tested different ways to write that single line. And I tried to add lines to modprobe.conf.local file too. Same result.

How I can install module? Module is compiled. I can start it from konsole, if I don't touch the modprobe.conf -file. I'm using wlan now... But that module starting every time after boot as su in konsole, that's quite hard. And slow.
