Doesn't the module configuration go in /etc/modprobe.d/*.conf and the
actual modprobe command(s) for device modules (such as those for LIRC
serial devices) that are not autodetected/loaded in

I tend to avoid the Fedora upgrade merry-go-round, so things may have
changed in Fedora 12 (so please accept my apologies if what I am
saying is wrong). I'm sure Jarod or another kindly Fedora user will
quickly point out if this information is no longer accurate.
