           Summary: The 7.4 section doesn't mention the hotplug initscript
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: 6.1
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/6.1/chapter07/u
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: alexander at linuxfromscratch.org

Currently the page says:

Access to a device node causes the appropriate kernel module to load. With udev,
this method will not work because the device node does not exist until the
module is loaded. To solve this, the S05modules bootscript was added to the
LFS-Bootscripts package, along with the /etc/sysconfig/modules file. By adding
module names to the modules file, these modules will be loaded when the computer
starts up.

It should also say that the "hotplug" initscript also was added that loads
modules for all PCI and USB devices in the system, and explain why the "modules"
script is still needed (undetectable modules like ip_nat_ftp).
