Thanks for the suggestion. I added the lines: floppy block-major-2 to the bottom of the blacklist file. I was hoping this would work, but no luck. I still receive the following error when I boot the machine: insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.o: init_module: No such device insmod: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters. You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.o: insmod block-major-2 failed I decided to try downloading Knoppix and booting off of that. When booting, it also said that the module failed to load, but then successfully loaded the system. So maybe this is just a Fedora issue. I suppose I can try installing Debian onto my machine. Thanks though! Brian -----Original Message----- From: Ben Steeves [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Friday, November 28, 2003 9:28 PM To: [email protected] Subject: RE: Where do I configure modules? Modules are loaded on demand by the kernel. You only need to put configuration for modules in modules.conf if they need it. In your case I believe you were trying to prevent a module from being loaded. This can usually be accomplished by putting the name of the module in /etc/hotplug/blacklist .
