Hello Ned,

I appreciate your prompt response, and definitely agree with you  
regarding the insmod part. I was actually thinking of removing that  
completely from the Wiki and leaving only the modprobe part of the 4a  
section. In addition, it appears to cause confusion to user who are  
not very tech/Linux savvy. The only reason why I left it there is  
because at the time of the original document writing, there were some  
issues where 'insmod' proved useful.

In addition, I just noticed that the boot-time module loading part is  
obsolete by being applicable to CentOS 5, rather than 6. I'll move on  
and update that also.
