Default WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf


I've changed the web hoster recently
and also upgraded from CentOS 5 to6.

Now I get this warning:

# service iptables restart
iptables: Flushing firewall rules: [ OK ]
iptables: Setting chains to policy ACCEPT: filter [ OK ]
iptables: Unloading modules: [ OK ]
iptables: Applying firewall rules: WARNING: Deprecated config file
/etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.

# cat /etc/modprobe.conf

### Hetzner Online AG - installimage
# load all modules

# networking
alias eth0 r8169

# hdds
alias scsi_hostadapter sata_via
alias scsi_hostadapter1 sata_sil
alias scsi_hostadapter2 sata_nv
alias scsi_hostadapter3 sd_mod
alias scsi_hostadapter4 ahci
alias scsi_hostadapter5 raid0
alias scsi_hostadapter6 raid1
alias scsi_hostadapter7 raid5
alias scsi_hostadapter8 raid6
alias scsi_hostadapter9 raid10
alias scsi_hostadapter10 3w-xxxx
alias scsi_hostadapter11 3w-9xxx
alias scsi_hostadapter12 aacraid

I wonder if it is safe to

# mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.d/

Where there are already some files:

# ll /etc/modprobe.d/
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 52 Jul 11 10:53 anaconda.conf
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 884 Jul 20 12:46 blacklist.conf
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 382 Nov 12 2010 dist-alsa.conf
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 5596 Nov 12 2010 dist.conf
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 473 Nov 12 2010 dist-oss.conf

I'd hate to lock out myself, as I don't have
a remote console attached to my server.

(I'd have to book it and to wait)

Any opinions please?
