Re: Debian modules

of course debian gives you a way to control what modules are loaded.  look at

Debian systems should honor /etc/modules, and *not* continue to load
everything else.

/etc/modules tells a system what TO load, not what NOT TO load. see
modules.conf for that.

you want entries like "alias module_name off" for modules that you don't
ever want loaded.  see the docs for more details.

My /etc/modules.conf say this at the top:

### This file is automatically generated by update-modules"
# Please do not edit this file directly. If you want to change or add
# anything please take a look at the files in /etc/modutils and read
# the manpage for update-modules.

So, if I add a bunch of "alias .... off" to that file will I break something? Also, if there is an update (kernel, modutils, etc) will I loose those settings and have to recreate them?
