list the modules that you want loaded in /etc/modules, in the order you
want them loaded.

note: this assumes you're not running with an initrd image. i don't use
them, but i imagine that they will affect module load order because
that's essentially the whole point of initrd - to load modules from a
ramdisk image that are needed to boot the system.
