Question How do i stop a kernel module loading?


Using Mandrake 10.1 - I want to disbale a module automatically loading that is built into the kernel - is there a way to do this? The module is a wireless driver that is causing problems - I have looked in modprobe.conf and removed the references to it but it still loads....

Thanks in advance
