Well, to be honest, I never did. I manually did the modprobe after booting up. I don't know how to create and make a script run automatically. Again, maybe someone else can help us out!

It should be as simple as adding a line to /etc/modules with the name of the module!

So, in your case, add the line
snd-es18xx
to the end of the file /etc/modules.
You will have to have root priveleges to do that, of course.

I would also suggest

man modules
and
man modprobe.conf

for more detail then you will probably understand at first about all
this.

One other thing you may not want to hear - that version of Ubuntu is no longer 'supported' so you won't be receiving any security updates. That would make me nervous if it were an internet-connected machine.

On the other hand, the next version of Ubuntu you could upgrade to, 6.06, really won't run, and probably won't install, with only 96M of memory.

woo hoo!!!
yesterday i was fiddleing around and got this figured out then you guys updated the thread with your posts.
in simple terms:
log in as root, open the file system go to /etc/modules
it is a document instead, in stead of the modprobe file and you add some of the data from the mod probe to the list of modules

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.

lp
psmouse
snd-es18xx

...And Voila! you have sound upon start up. congratufreakinlations i had to try 3 different installs before i could find enough info to get my sound card working right which was the only real problem i experienced.
For the record i was running ubuntu 6.06 lts. v10 is now out also.
I tried blag, whats nice about it is it comes with more multimedia features that take far less work to configure, but ubuntu has a much nicer(no thats an opinion) cleaner desktop and toolbars.
Xubuntu is nice as well.
I may retry blag w/xfce and the my new found understanding on sound configuration for a COMPAQ ARMADA 7800 LAPTOP.
Perhaps if someone else has the same problem i had and googles it, they may find this thread on their first couple of attempts.
