module loading and unloading


I recently installed Fedora Core 3 and I have an Nvidia graphics card. Naturally, I had to d/l a new module for the kernel. But, this module doesn't autoload because there is another module loaded that denies it. So when I turn the computer on I must run the following commands, which I now put in a script out of laziness, anyway I could put it in the boot sequence?

here's the commands:

modprobe -r rivafb
modprobe nvidia

I don't know how autoloading modules works, but you could put that module you do NOT want to load into /etc/hotplug/blacklist to prevent it from doing so...
