Do yo mean the module? If you don't want it loaded (though I have it and 
there are no problems) just blacklist it in a file (ex. 00local.conf) 
under /etc/modprobe.d/ with

blacklist ipv6

I saw in the (sniped) output above that you also use firestarter. I 
don't think it's a good idea to mix firewall frontends with custom rules 
in some script. Pick one and stick to it.

If firestarter can't do what you need (or don't know how to configure 
it) just ask for help, there are many others (personally I prefer 
shorewall, it's quite easy to setup and very powerful).

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
