On a 2.6 kernel that file would now be /etc/modprobe.conf, and some 
syntax has changed, but alias is still the same.
Also note that this change alone may not be sufficient.  If you run 
system-config-network it is possible to configure MAC addr association 
with interface configs, which you may want to explore if the alias lines 
in /etc/modprobe.conf don't fix your problem.
