I think I tried it on RedHat 9, and the file did not exist (nor did any
of the init scripts pay any attention to it when I created it). It
seems to be restricted to Debian and possibly a few other distros.
If I remember correctly, I had to hack the /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit file to
load the modules listed in /etc/modules. Something like:
for mod in `cat /etc/modules`
However, I switched the box to Debian/testing a few weeks later, so in
the end it didn't really matter.
