I'm wondering why my modules.conf that I had to edit keeps reverting back to the previous version every time I reboot; it is really kind of frustrating. It means that every time I reboot I have to mess around and reload the ide-scsi module as well as having to load the module for my soundcard (if I forget to do the latter all manner of nastiness happens when KDE starts up). It also sends up a flurry of warnings that my "modules.conf is newer than modules.dep" [I'm thinking - so what if it is?].

Taken from my modules.conf:

### 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.

Seems straightforward enough.

Um, D'oh! Yes it does. Don't I look kind of silly?

But, going back to the discussion of the CD-Writing Howto, nowhere does it mention that even though it's clear that modules.conf has to be modified...
