  I don't know about the specific tools. However for it was enough to
copy some specific module configuration files from /etc/modutils/ to
/etc/modprobe.d and then to run update-modules.

  You might want to read 
/usr/share/doc/kernel-package/HOWTO-Linux-2.6-Woody.gz. I believe both
insmod and modprobe work although it could be that their semantics have
been changed.
