Hi Tim. Just out of interest, how does "net-pf-10" reference just the ipv6 
part of the "S10network" shellscript in /etc/rc.d/rc5.d ?

For earlier versions (FC1,2,and3) I normally just added modules I did not want 
loaded at bootup to hotplugs blacklist, stuff like the OSS modules "audio" 
and "usb_midi" when using Alsa. But hotplug is no longer being used on FC5.

I have made changes to /etc/modprobe.conf before, but only for the load 
ordering of Alsa soundcard modules, snd-emu10k1, snd-usb-audio, etc, and 
these are written just as they appear in /sbin/lsmod. /sbib/lsmod shows ipv6 
as a module, which is why I ask about the specific syntax you use to have it 
set to "off" at bootup.
