Yes, you can get rid of it. A fresh install shouldn't have
modules.conf at all.

(That's if you're not planning to try to run 2.4 kernels.)

Of course, it's normally a good plan to rename files and run for a bit
to check that they really aren't needed. I like to use my initials for
this (e.g. modules.conf -> modules.conf.jpw): that way, I know that I
renamed the file manually, not some upgrade program.
