Just as an aside, /etc/modules wasn't used in 2.4.x or 2.2.x, either.  It's
a Debian-ism.  Modules listed there are loaded during boot by the
/etc/init.d/modutils script (beginning at line 16 of that script).

If you had your modules set up properly, you wouldn't need to use
/etc/modules.  It's a crutch.

I have no idea whatsoever if that script still exists if you're using the
module-init-tools package to support 2.6.x, nor do I care.  I'm not about
to run 2.6, nor will I until there's some demonstrated advantage in it.

Your mileage may vary.
