I read about "how to mess with modules.conf" somewhere a while ago. Can't remember where. You're supposed to put those configuration stuff in a file in /etc/modutils. The one for alsa should be called /etc/modutils/alsa. Then run update-modules as root. I think update-modules takes everything from all files in /etc/modutils and puts it straight in /etc/modules.conf with a little comment where each section is taken from.
