how do I pass a module parameter?

I'm having some problems with an external firewire hard disk. Apparently I need to pass a parameter to the sbp2 kernel module, namely

sbp2_serialize_io = 1

I'm running on Sarge with the 2.6.8 kernel. How do I pass this option -

a. "in-running", so I can test the change to see if it's had the desired effect.

b. permanently, so that it works automatically on a reboot.

Sorted now. I went into /etc/modules and added the line

sbp2 serialize_io=1

which seems to have done the trick.
