That's a bit hard to believe because the kernel doesn't remember which
modules were loaded before shutdown and so it can't reload them on boot
up. In principle there is an autoloading facility for device drivers
using modprobe/depmod but I don't think it is used on the tablets and it
wouldn't help with NFS either.

So, I think the proper way to make the installation permanent is
actually to put the insmod lines into a script run at boot time (e.g. at
the end of /etc/init.d/rcS).

No idea which magic did this for you on OS2007. Maybe some package
modifies the init files such as to load the modules?
