Erm, no.  Add it's name to the /etc/modules *file*.  If you wanted to load 
the "usbcore.ko" module on every boot, you would add the line "usbcore" to 
the /etc/modules file.

FWIW, most people when referring to a file will use "/foo/bar" - note the 
lack of trailing slash?  This represents the *file* "bar" in the directory 
"foo".  Converseley, "/foo/bar/" (note the trailing slash this time?) 
refers to a *directory*.  At least that's been the convention /I/ was 
taught (and have used) since the Fidonet days of yonder year :)

dope fiends or both.  People laugh at you a great deal.
