Passing parameters to modules in Ubuntu when they first load
  1. Add your module to /etc/modules

     # /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
     #
     # This file contains the names of kernel modules
     # that should be loaded at boot time, one per line.
     # Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
     saa7134
    
  2. Add options saa7134 card=42 at the end of /etc/modprobe.d/options

     # Enable double-buffering so gstreamer et. al. work
     options quickcam compatible=2
     # Default hostap to managed mode
     options hostap_pci iw_mode=2
     options hostap_cs iw_mode=2
     # Stop auto-association.
     # LP: #264104
     options ipw2200 associate=0
     # XXX: Ignore HPA by default. Needs to be revisted in jaunty
     options libata ignore_hpa=1
     options saa7134 card=42
