I have no modules.conf as far as i can see

Hi, Im trying to have a module load every time my computer boots for a bttv video card driver, and i've read if you want to have your modules automatically load you add the lines to your modules.conf file.

I did locate modules.conf and results were returned but none in the etc/ folder is imodules.conf in a sub folder or somewhere else in fedora core2 or can i just create a modules.conf file and add my lines to it?

Thanks in advance.
Ken O.

p.s. this is what locate modules.conf returned

[root@localhost ftvco]# locate modules.conf
[root@localhost ftvco]# modules.conf
bash: modules.conf: command not found

What is the result if you type:

ls /etc | grep modules

It is possible that your locate database hasn't been updating, so modules.conf might be there, and locate might not find it.

Also, for some general info (probably including Fedora-specific info about where modules.conf should be), try:

man modules.conf

If modules.conf really isn't where it should be, you can create your own, but I bet there's some other explanation.

In fedora core2 I think you will find it is 'modprobe.conf'
