Hey guys,

First time post here, I recently installed Porteus on an old Laptop that a friend gave me a while back. I have to say this is probably one of the slickest linux distros I've played around with. However, it seems that I have arrived at a loss. This is my first interaction with Slackware, so after some online tutorials I understand more. So I can get my way around that, sort of. But my real question revolves around the Porteus Modules. I found the link elsewhere on the forums with Modules for Chrome and OpenOffice and a few other things. I downloaded them and they worked after I clicked on them twice. However I have to do that every time I restart the computer. After some more research I know that if I put them into the Module File or something of the sort then they will be automatically loaded. This might sound like a silly question but, where can I find that file? I can't seem to find it in the file manager.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Oh also I'm running Porteus 3.1.

To make things crystal clear, in donald's example the folder being referred to is: /mnt/sdb1/porteus/modules :)
