354You should list the modules you want automatically loaded in
355<path>/etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6</path>. You can add extra options to
356the modules too if you want.
357</p>
358
359<p>
360To view all available modules, run the following <c>find</c> command. Don't
361forget to substitute "&lt;kernel version&gt;" with the version of the kernel you
362just compiled:

370For instance, to automatically load the <c>3c59x.ko</c> module, edit the
371<path>kernel-2.6</path> file and enter the module name in it.
