Insert module at boot time

I have seen several posts on the site with the same query but the solution seems to be distro specific. I have a module I want to load every time after booting the system. I am using Fedora 17 with Linux kernel 3.4.4.Please provide any suggestions as to what steps to follow for making sure my module 'xyz' is loaded at boot time into the kernel.

Thanks in advance!

Fedora has this to say about loading modules at boot time:

In future, it would be a good idea to use your distros documentation at their website in search of answers. That holds true of most distros.

Also use web search engines before posting questions. In Most Cases, unless you are dealing with bleeding edge hardware, questions have already been answered on line.

Jus' a friendly tip from your old uncle Lar.


boot, module
