/etc/modules.conf: The configuration file which specifies which kernel modules can be loaded on demand.

From http://home.t-online.de/home/g-jaeger/howtos/NewbiePlustekHowto/node12.html:

Under /etc there should be either a file called modules.conf or a file called conf.modules. More often and with the more recent distributions it will be modules.conf (therefore I will be using that name in the sequel). This file contains instructions for the kernel (for modprobe and depmod to be more precise) which modules have to be loaded in case of demand. By adding appropriate amendments to modules.conf, the kernel can be instructed to automatically load the necessary modules if and only if they are needed by some application. Therefore you do not need to add explicit instruction to load the modules somewhere else but the kernel will automatically do that.
