Modules aren't automatically loaded because they appear in
modprobe.conf.  They get loaded when the device file associated with the
module gets accessed.  To confirm things, is your ethernet interface
working properly after rebooting?  If so, then modprobe.conf is correct
for that alias.

As for the sound card entry:  Yours looks like mine and it seems to work
correctly.  After a reboot, but before loading anything by hand, can you
access the mixer via the desktop icon?  If so then check the output of
lsmod.  Your sound modules should be loaded.  If not check
/var/log/messages or dmesg for errors.

As to the char-major-81 entries:  Where did they come from?  Did kudzu
detect the device at boot up and configure it for you or were these
added manually?  What kind of capture card do you have?
