Autoload ide-scsi module

I have a Quantum Travan IDE Tape Drive. I have installed and it shows up under hardware browser.
I can't seem to get it to work. I read that I may need to load the ide-scsi module.
How can I set this to autoload at boot?

ravenplCommented:
create file /etc/sysconfig/modules/local.modules, make it executeable (chmod +x /etc/sysconfig/modules/local.modules)
add lines like following
#!/bin/sh
/sbin/modprobe ide-scsi
/sbin/modprobe another_modules

Yes, FC is the only one I know where You have to call modprobe instead just putting modulenames into some files...

I think you can also add this to your grub.conf file, for example;

title Fedora Core (2.6.16-1.2111_FC4)
        root (hd1,0)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2111_FC4 hda=ide-scsi ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.16-1.2111_FC4.img

where I had a CDRW drive setup as /dev/hda on my system. Though I've not used ravenpl's method for this sort of this, if it works it would be more flexible and easier to sort out if you get a problem, I think if you updated the kernel you may loose the grub setup as above.
