If you create /etc/modprobe.conf you disable the use of /etc/modprobe.d
which is what debian uses. This is not a good idea.
Make your changes in a new file under /etc/modprobe.d instead.
Also the common way that I know of ti disable someting is to either
blacklist it from discover/hotplug (so you can still load it manually if
you want to), or do 'alias eth1394 off' in a modprobe.d/ file.
