If you are using a 2.6 kernel, you edit etiher /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modprobe.preload. The older vesions of RH using the 2.4 kernels used /etc/modules.conf IIRC. These are all text configuration files. If all else fails you can also edit /etc/rc.d/rc.local by adding to the end of that file:

modprobe <module name>
