you have to put modprobe /path/to/the/sk98lin in your modules.conf. try it!

didnt work. it just gave an error during startup saying something like modprobe error on line 1. the location of the module is already located in the modules.dep file its just a case of getting the module to start by itself as im dont want to start it manualy every time i start my computer.

thanks

if the command 'modprobe sk98lin' works for you, you can put this in /etc/rc.d/rc.local
