Gentoo--Loading b44 module at startup?


I have the appropriate b44 module compiled into my kernel. When I start Gentoo, eth0 tries to come up, but it can't. It turns out that b44 isn't loading at boot--for some reason I have to load it manually. I'm very new to Gentoo and I'm not sure where to go to get this thing to load a little quicker. Any ideas?

Add the module name to the file in /etc/modules.autoload.d/ that matches your kernel.
