[mythtv-users] How do I properly blacklist the juju firewire stack in fedora 12?

I have been having continuing issues with firewire recrodings that I
believe stem from the juju stack.  I am trying to revert back to using
the old ieee1394 packages from ATRPMS.  New KMDLs have been built for
the current kernel.

I installed the package and created a file in /etc/modules.d/ called
firewire.conf that contains the following:
blacklist firewire_core
blacklist firewire_ohci

I rebooted the system, and it appears that these two still load up
from looking at lsmod.  Is that because it is built in the kernel?
Something similar happened when I tried to blacklist the nouveau
driver.  I was able to add an argument in grub.conf
("nouveau.modset=0") to fix that, but I am not sure how I would go
about doing it for these drivers.  I would like to avoid having to
rebuild initrd (no idea how and it sounds like it could screw things
