insmod <module> on boot


I need to load a kernel module on the start up.
There is a huge mix of information about what I should do.

Is there any easy and elegant way to do this???

How can I start a simple program that I wrote in start up?

thank you!
HTS

This depends on your distribution (which you don't mention)

On debian to have the module "8139too" (realtech ethernet card) loaded on startup, you just add a line saying "8139too" to /etc/modules.
