Does that actually force the module to load?  I think I tried it in FC1
with a winmodem module and modules.conf and it didn't work.  My impression
was that modules.conf would only help locate the correct module to load on
demand.  (Now modprobe.conf may work differently...)

My solution was to add the modprobe command to /etc/rc.modules.  That
script is invoked by /etc/rc.sysinit for this purpose.
