ubuntu karmic module blacklisting

I'm trying to blcklist the intel_agp kernel module.
in order to so I create the file blacklist-custom.conf inside /etc/modprobe.d

the file is containing the line:
blacklist intel_agp
isn't that enough for blacklisting a module? because everytime I restart the module intel_agp will be loaded anyway?(lsmod|grep intel_agp)

Have you tried adding intel_agp directly to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf? I have never know any other way to blacklist something except to add it to blacklist.conf. THis may also solve your module loading problem.

good luck,
