Module initialization at startup

Dear all,
Does anybody know how to load a module at startup? I have a new driver installed for my ethernet card, and I don't want to have to go through the 'superuser, then insmod' routine everytime i want to go online.

I'm using the new 2.6.2 kernel and I know that it's something to do with changing the modprobe.conf file, except it doesn't really tell you how to...

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
