Quick Question: permanently remove modules?

I've been trying to load the ALSA drivers and after much travail figured out that I had to modprobe -r i810_audio and then I could succesfully load the ALSA module for the driver I needed. On reboot, however, the system reloaded the previous configuration and by the time it got around to loading the intel8x0 module there was no place for the module to go. SO: how do I permanently alter the module configuration? In the same direction there are a lot of modules in lsmod that are denoted as (autoclean) and (unused) can I/should I remove these? THanks in advance!

On slackware you can put the drivers you won't use in /etc/hotplug/blacklist.
May be there's something similar in your distribution.
Otherwise you should recompile the kernel.
Check in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules or the equivalent on your distribution as well. If the driver is listed in that script you can uncomment the line of that occourence avoiding it to be loaded at boot.

Actually, figured out it was Discover that was loading the module. Went in and disable Discover for sound and it works great. Thanks for your help though, I really appreciate it.
