disable modules from loading on boot

I've been trying to figure out what file specifies what modules to load on boot, but it looks like it's different for every distro (or Fedora/RedHat at least)... More specifically, I don't want orinoco_cs, orinoco, and hermes to load at boot. How can I do this?

Well, in debian it is /etc/modules; it can be something else on other distributions. In addition, tools like kudzu,discover and some other hotplug-tools probe the modules automaticly.
