Question Load module(s) at boot time


I'd like to load the ip_conntrack module and the ip_conntrack_ftp module at boot time since I need them for my passive ftp server. I am able to load the modules into the kernel, but where do I specify these modules have to be loaded at boot time ?
What's the easiest way to do this ?

One way i know and i only know
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit or some file with name alike.
In this file(it's the bootup shell script control the whole boot process, mount root filesystem, load drivers, etc), u can specify the module u want to load.

Also try /etc/modules.conf. I think this is processed at boot time.
