Question How to prevent it from loading?

Hi, here's my current problem:
I want to install alsa driver, but before ,as i understand, i should make sure that the kernel doesn't load an old OSS module. I couldn't find any mention of it in modules or modules.conf files. Would it be a proper way to comment out entries in the /lib/modules/2.6.8-3-k7/modules.alias file in order to prevent it from loading?
