/etc/modules shouldn't have scary comments. You're
probably looking at /etc/modules.conf which is
built from all the files in /etc/modutils/ .

You can put module-loading options in a file
called, say, /etc/modutils/local and then run
update-modules to incorporate them in modules.conf.
man update-modules explains.

Here's mine, for example:

alias char-major-15 joy-sidewinder
options opl3sa io=0x530 irq=10 dma=0 dma2=1 mpu_io=0x330 mpu_irq=7
options sb io=0x220 irq=7 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330
options opl3 io=0x388
options opl3sa2 io=0x370 mss_io=0x530 mpu_io=0x330 irq=5 dma=0 dma2=1
