Load modules at boot

I have an old 486 working as router, Slackware 10.0 and 3 NICs.
Have to do "modprobe 3c509" and "modprobe 8139too" to make the cards work, but any time that restart the system have to do it again.

Is there any way to save the modules to make them load at boot?

You need to add the modproble lines (or uncomment existing ones) in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules

get 3c5x9cfg.exe to program 3c509 ethernet card. remove # in front of /sbin/modprobe module line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules as recommended. i think adding the eth number (eth0, eth1, eth2) for your cards, and irq# to the module so the cards load as desired. a space between each is needed. hopefully the cards won't all use the same irq#- the 3com card will allow for an irq change.

be logged in as root, and use an editor to modify /rc.modules.
