adding module at boot process


i really need to know this...
i have an SATA drive and found the relevant driver from via's site.i have to manually load it by using the command->
modprobe viamraid
and only after this,the sata drive is visible(i boot from an ide)

now i need to load this module during the boot process,and before the fstab fle is read otherwise i get an error which says i dont have SDA...

i dont know how to configure the modules.conf if anyone can help me find my way out,it would be great...

thank you,

Did you already read 'man modules.conf'?
