Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

@anonymous (re modules)

You can only use /etc/modules (which exists on any 2.6-kernel based distro) if the module you're loading doesn't take any options. If it needs options, you need to use modprobe.conf. The 2.4 equivalent was modules.preload, btw.
