Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So there's lots of verbage out there on how to start one's modules on boot, but for some reason I have a couple I want to stop from loading, and I can't find out how.
I am trying to get alsa working, and it does if I kill my oss module. I have turned off oss in my 2.6 kernel and recompiled it, but still, these modules are loading. They don't show up in /etc/modules or /etc/modules.conf
Is there a command I can run like gentoo's modules-update when I have my modules the way I want them that will update some file, or is it ok for me to delete these modules in order to stop them from loading? I'll never need them again...
I guess I'll just delete my oss soundcard module. Gentoo has a command that really solves this problem, and I'm sure there has to be one for debian also, but, as always, knowing the command is the problem.
