Automatically loading modules with Red Hat 7.1

Alas my employer is pro Red Hat and I'm more familiar with Debian than Red
I'm currently stumped as to how to do the equivalent of /etc/modules in Red Hat.
I want to make the system automatically load a module on bootup.
In this particular case, it's the module for my SCSI card. kudzu picked it up
alias scsi_hostadapter initio
to my /etc/modules.conf, but this doesn't actually load the module on bootup,
which is what I want.
I've rummaged through all the startup files and can't really see any reference
to anything that looks like it does what I want, but I can't believe I have to
modprobe the sucker every time, or otherwise rely on the kernel to modprobe it
for me when I happen to try and access something.
