How do you save new card settings? Subject description: Need to save settings found using modprobe
I have been successful in getting modprobe to load the eepro module for my Kalex 94V ethernet card however the settings are not saved so I have to run modprobe each time I boot.
How do I get Puppy to save the configuration data?
EDIT: I am running Puppy 4.0 and after entering the modprobe eepro autodetect=-1 I then used the Wizard to test and run DHCP.
At the end of the DHCP Wizard I am asked if I want to save these setting to be used when the PC boots. I click on Yes but it does not seem to save anything as on the next boot the ethernet card is not connected.
The Wizard would never make the initial module to card connection and only modprobe could achieve that.

You could put
modprobe eepro autodetect=-1
in rc.local and it will be loaded at boot.
When you run then the NW Wizard and save the session, hopefully it'll stick this time. _________________ Time savers:

Thanks! While I could not get the modprobe eepro autodetect=-1 to do anything in the directory/file you suggested, I was able to get it to at least connect to the card by placing the modprobe..... statement in a new file \startup\startnetwork.
Once that was done, at least the connect wizard would show the card connected and gave me the opportunity to run DHCP.
I then went back to my new startnetwork file and added
dhcpcd -d eth0
