The installer does. Type "expert" at the boot prompt and you will be
prompted for which hardware drivers to load. Or are you talking only about
problems after the base system is installed, such as your i810_audio

A comment at the top of /etc/modules.conf explains that you should not
edit the file directly and what to do instead.
