What the heck is the difference between these 2 files? (conf.modules and modules.conf)

Everytime the file conf.modules is present, on bootup I get a message which basically says:
"get rid of conf.modules as soon as possible by typing 'rm conf.modules'"
I guess you answered my question! thanks.
Just upgraded my RH6.2 box to kernel 2.2.18 (in conjunction with
applying vpn masq patch). Now I notice that it complains about
conf.modules, so I renamed this to conf.modules.old and made a copy as
modules.conf. Now it complains that modules.conf is newer than
modules.dep. And, in any case, it doesn't seem to load my modules
(specifically 3c509.o for ethernet).
My present workaround is just to manually invoke this module (modprobe
3c509) and restart /etc/rc.d/init.d/network (as well as dhcpd and
named), but I know there's gotta be a "Right Way" of doing this.
What's different between 2.2.18 and my old kernel (2.2.14-5.0) in
terms of handling these files? And, more importantly, how do I
correct this situation? Many thanks, in advance.
