You can that to /etc/rc.d/rc.local at the
bottom.

Then it will run everytime you boot.

either add below command to /etc/rc.d/rc.local or /etc/rc.d/rc.modules

Quote
/sbin/modprobe e100

or double check the blacklist file inside /etc/modprobe.d and comment out the e100 modules as show below....just put an extra "#" sign in front of the blacklist 100.....

Quote
# Alternate Intel EtherExpress Pro/100 support driver.  List it
# here so it won't conflict with an already-loaded eepro100 module.
# blacklist e100
