Additional modules to load with system boot ?

Hello everyone,
debian 3.1-sarge stable /w

I've configured on my system the ndiswrapper module and it works great.
The problem now it that I need to do a sudo modprobe ndiswrapper each time I reboot the system, I wish to automate this rutine.

I've tried to edit /etc/modprobe.conf but I ended out breaking it. Must be doing something wrong.
modprobe.conf(5) ain't much of a help either...

How should I configure this (ndiswrapper) or any other kernel module to load at system boot ?

Thank you,
