Prevent unused modules form loading at boot

Hi. I'm new to debian/kubuntu. I want to prevent a few modules from being 
loaded at boot time. I've tried the option "skip= module_a module_b module_c" 
in /etc/discover-modprobe.conf but it doesn't work: the modules are still 
being loaded. I also tried to edit /etc/hotplug.d/blacklist. Same result.

Any idea, beside deleting files in /lib/modules?

Kubuntu 5.10
Kernel 2.6.12-10-686

Many thanx
