You can edit /etc/mod.conf (from memory) to get rid of those modprobe
warnings, but it shouldn't actually affect SLIP working, They are just
an alias for particular network procotols I think. I've had those
warnings for many kernels and SLIP still works for me (just couldn't
be bothered fixing the file, was waiting for some debian thing to do
it for me :))
