Thanks for the help so far.  I did try the chkconfig command, but it
still does not work.  I think it was "/sbin/chkconfig lircd on".  Here
is my current /etc/modprobe.conf file.  What additional lines would
you suggest I add?

[mythtv at localhost mythtv]$ cat /etc/modprobe.conf
alias eth0 via-rhine
alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
install snd-via82xx /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-via82xx &&
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-via82xx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-via82xx
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
# nvidia kernel module
alias char-major-195 nvidia-1_0-6111
alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
# ivtv modules setup
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
#options ivtv ivtv_debug=1 mpg_buffers=90
#options msp3400 once=1 simple=1
#add below ivtv msp3400 saa7115 tuner
#add above ivtv lirc_dev lirc_i2c
install lirc_i2c /sbin/modprobe ivtv; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install
