You probably want a custom kernel that has everything built in. That is
illustrated by the module list I have with my Zotac board - it only has
the nvidia video driver and the remote control stuff as modules. Very
necessary in my case because I'm diskless booting over the network which
results in the same sort of chicken and egg situation you have in loading
the drivers but not having the drivers for the media to load them!!
zotac ~ # lsmod
Module Size Used by
nvidia 9610616 38
lirc_mceusb2 10692 1
lirc_dev 9800 3 lirc_mceusb2
zotac ~ #
In fact apart from these, the only other modules in the /lib/modules
directory I have are hdpvr.ko and scsi_wait_scan.ko.
I can send you my kernel .config file if that helps - I got it from
someone off the list in the first place!!
