In FC4 you can create a script with a name ending in ".modules"

now.

Is this preferable to writing a modprobe command in rc.local ?
Is rc.local frowned on now?
Depends when you want the module loaded. rc.local is executed right at 
the end of the boot process, but rc.modules or 
/etc/sysconfig/modules/*.modules is much earlier. If you need your 
module loading for some services to start, rc.local will be too late.
