You can remove modules with the "rmmod" command, or by using "modconf".
Or you can simply comment/remove the lines in "/etc/modules" and reboot.

With recent kernels and Debian versions (Sid, Testing), most of the
hardware should detect automagically. For those items that don't
autodetect, you can use "lspci" to find the chipset of the offending
device, then use "modconf" to try loading relevant modules.
