To make modprobe believe that it has loaded a module you can set an
alias in /etc/modutils/donotload :

alias 8390 off

This way, a modprobe 8390 will do nothing and return a 0 (OK) status.
This is for 2.4.

In 2.6, this is slightly different. You have to put in
/etc/modprobe.d/donotload :

install 8390 /bin/true
