you could try commenting the lines containing the problem modules in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules or add the modules to /etc/hotplug/blacklist, either method should stop the modules from loading.
good luck.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
