Re: ds20; sarge; 2.4.27; how to I force a particular NIC driver?

dan ...

i had the same problem with my ES40's, i just changed the /etc/modules file to load the eepro driver at boot:

dove-01:/etc# more modules
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line.  Comments begin with
# a "#", and everything on the line after them are ignored.

I did a clean netinst/sarge install on a DS20L and found that the default e100 driver
was highly unstable.  It would operate fine for a short time, but whenever
any amount of data was transferred (a few MB), it simply stopped without
error.  Doing an ifdown/ifup makes it work again.

I found by chance that if I removed e100 and added eepro100,
it runs normally. (rmmod e100; modprove eepro100)

How do I make this permanent/across reboots?
