I am not an expert on that, but last time what I
did on my NIC, I found out it is using the right
modules, just like your is "ne.o", you may check the
HOWTO page, and recompile the kernel and make as
modules, so it will auto load the modules when boot
That is my idea, but for sure, you can find anyway
to do more simply. I think there is a find like
"autoexec.bat" on dos when linux boot up, init.xx
something, I pass on this part, since I am running
Debian. Hope it helps.
