There's some function that turns on whatever mode you want, which you
can add to the hook list.  For instance, in my .emacs file I have:

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'turn-on-visual-line-mode)

If there were no function called turn-on-visual-line-mode, I could have used:

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook (lambda() (visual-line-mode 1)))

...which is actually all turn-on-visual-line-mode is.  Most (all?)
minor modes have a function of the same name that turns the mode on
with a numeric argument > 0 and off with a numeric argument <= 0, so
you could always do that.  Also, the following:

(add-hook 'text-mode-hook 'visual-line-mode)

...would do what I want, because visual-line-mode with no argument
toggles the mode, and text-mode starts with it OFF.

Hope that helps.
