look for /etc/modprobe.conf and /etc/modprobe.d/files.  I also find 
/etc/modprobe.conf.local which is to be the one you add local stuff to.

Note at the bottom of /etc/modprobe.conf there will be a "include " line 
  so that modprobe will read it at boot time.

I believe /etc/modules.conf and conf.modules are depreciated.

man -k modprobe
modprobe (8)         - program to add and remove modules from the Linux 
modprobe.conf (5)    - Configuration file/directory for modprobe
modprobe.d (5) [modprobe.conf] - Configuration file/directory for modprobe

man -k depmod
depmod (8)           - program to generate modules.dep and map files.

and with your new kernel
man -k mkinitrd
mkinitrd (8)         - create initrd disk image
