They are used in Xen. I need netbk, xenblk, blktap, blkbk, and netloop.
If I modprobe them from the console, then start a vm everything is groovy
so I am sure when they load isn't an issue especially if they can handle
early loading with my custom initrd.

Was my modprobe.conf syntax right?

Thanks for all your help!
