NIC Driver Install

Hi All,

I have just downloaded and install a driver for mu NIC and it works fine but every time I reboot the machine I need to run the insmod command again.

Can someone please tell me how I can get this driver to start when the macine is booted.

Thanks in advance

Edit your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file and add the line /sbin/modprobe <modulename>

If your using redhat itll be /etc/modules.conf
