Is it ok to modify /etc/rc.d/modules-2.4.33 ?

Ive got an error message at bootup saying something about apm module not found, but apm is working. Can I edit this line:

#### APM support ###
# APM is a BIOS specification for saving power using several different
# techniques. This is mostly useful for battery powered laptops.
/sbin/modprobe apm

and put a # in front of "/sbin/modprobe apm"
to stop the error?
I dont care if apm is on or off.

Chances are apm is compiled into your kernel instead of as a module. So making that change should work.

(Or if you want to leave that file as it is, you can copy it to rc.modules.local and make all the changes you want there.)
