Hi Norman,

it's a very simple file, you can create it by all means. Mine looks like 

jaska at speyburn:~$ head /etc/modules
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.


Nothing else to it, you don't even need the commented lines. Just add 
the module name onto the first line and it should be all set. :)
