#make #make install ? (install driver)

I install driver by "#make". It built *.o. Next I type "#make install".
It is not happen. So I type "#insmod *.o". It is OK but it is not auto.
I must type "#insmod *.o" when start Linux every time.

Please advise me to using insmod (or the other) for auto boot.
And/or correct installation.(#make install) where folder ?

ok put this command in your "/etc/rc.d/rc.local" file

"/sbin/modprobe *.o"

this file is executed everytime the computer boots.
