Dumb question - did you run depmod or reboot after making the change
in modprobe.conf? (depmod is run by a startup script.) You will find
that changes in modprobe.conf will usualy not take affect until
depmod is run.

You can also manually load the modules with modprobe, and run
"ifconfig -a" to see if it shows up.
