Automatic NE2000 driver load?

Thanks to your service I now have "modprobe" finding my NE2000. I now want this to happen automatically at system startup. I am using the Red Hat 4.1 distribution on an Intel 486 platform. I thought this may just be a case of adding an extra "S" file in the rc2.d directory. I tried this (see below), but as far as I can tell my script is not being executed as none of my "echos" appear on the console. There is an S10network script in rc2.d, which is a link to /etc/rc.d/init.d/network, which in turn runs scripts from  /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. At this point I start to get lost. Should I really be setting up a script in ../network-scripts? If so, would you be able to supply a sample?

Many Thanks,

I'm not running linux right now so I can't look, but there is a file under rc.d somewhere that is called local or something similar.  Just move your code to that file and it will be executed.
