241You should list the modules you want automatically loaded in 229<include href="hb-install-kernelmodules.xml"/>
242<path>/etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6</path>. You can add extra 230</subsection>
243options to the modules too if you want.

245 231
246<p>
247To view all available modules, run the following <c>find</c> command. Don't
248forget to substitute "&lt;kernel version&gt;" with the version of the kernel you
249just compiled:

257For instance, to automatically load the <c>3c59x.ko</c> module, edit the
