autoload modules?

How do I auto load modules? Like paride,epat,pt or joydev and such? I would like to not have to go to root everytime I need these, so during boot up would be the best place to load. How? Where? what script is safest to place these commands in? Thanks. -cg

The best way will be to have it in the kernel (most distro kernels have it by default).
You can but somewhere in the boot scripts (/etc/rc.d)
modprobe xxxxx
