How to load kernel modules automatically during system boot

How to load kernel modules upon startup? Everytime I want to connect my ipod I have to load the hfsplus kernel module. So I decided to load it automatically upon system bootup. In Suse 9, kernel modules that are supposed to be loaded after the main file system has mounted are specified in /etc/sysconfig/kernel: MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT=" cdrom ide-cd ide-scsi hfsplus"
