This isn't directed to you, Bruce.. but your message brought up a point.
There is something that I've been wondering.. Why is everyone so
fascinated with modules? I acknowledge that they have their uses, but how
many people really need to UNLOAD a module once it's loaded?
If you need it, compile it into the kernel, where it belongs. You'll find
that there are a lot fewer problems if you do.
