Eric,

I presume you have a proper boot script?

If you start the system with the command-line option 'mode -embedded', all modules will be loaded at boot time.

This also turns off dynamic code loading - no free lunch here. You can still explicitly load modules, but unfortunately (?), it's not possible to tell the code_server to go from embedded to 'interactive' mode.
