	It like this....  You get lucky in your searches on Google.;^)  That is how
I found mine.  I had remembered in a previous install that I needed to do
something like, but could not remember the syntax.  I did a search and found
this.  I copied it into the /etc/modules.conf file and rebooted.  It worked!
Now all I have to do is remember to save it someplace to use it again on
another machine.  That is the trick!!

Sorry that it wasn't more scientific.

This worked great.

But . . .  how would a person know all this?  Where do you get information
like this? How do you know what to enter?  How do you know the parameters
and everything?

Thanks for the assistance, though!
