Modules question
where can I find a list of modules and can they be started and stopped from the command line and if so is this safe?

What modules are you trying to load? The ability of loading/unloalding modules while the system is running is one of the nicest benifits of using a module.

To start the APM (advanced power managemant) module..

$# modprobe apm

or if your using older kernel version..

$# insmod apm

can some one let me know what the $# does at the begining of the

"$# modprobe apm" line

The $# simply refers to your console prompt. Usually, $ denotes the prompt for a regular user and # denotes the prompt for root. You don't type these in; deanrantala was simply trying to illustrate what the command line looks like.
