You neglect to mention if this is sarge or etch.
If all you are trying to do is load a module at boottime, adding a line
with the module name in /etc/modules should do it.
If you want to load it now and make sure there are no arguments you have
to add, try
additionally, upon doing my etch upgrade I happened to grab discover.
Quite useless to me since I already have a stable setup that doesn't
change each boot and works fine, but nice to see that it detected all my
hardware and noted what was compiled to the kernel, what was in already
loaded modules, and what could use modules not loaded yet. Look it up
and see if it might be useful to you.
#aptitude install discover1
There is nothing life threatening about man pages.
