[CentOS-devel] 'Correct' way to load snd-ioctl32 module?

I want to be able to run i386 applications on CentOS4 x86_64 boxes that 
use sound - for this to work the snd-ioctl32 kernel module needs to be 

This module isn't loaded by default by rc.sysinit, and I was just 
wondering if anyone knew the 'correct' way to get this module installed.

I can get it to work by adding the following line to /etc/modprobe.conf:

install snd /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd && \
   /sbin/modprobe snd-ioctl32

This works fine - but is this an acceptable way to do this? Is there a 
better method?
