Hmmm, the proper file when using 2.6.x kernels is /etc/modprobe.conf,
maybe modules.conf is still being read but I don't know if there has
been a syntax change in what you can put there (most probably the reason
why add is not recognized). It looks like the instructions need to be
redone for newer kernels and os versions.

This is probably the newer version of the alsa-utils package that fedora
core released. They are probably not including alsaconf as fc uses its
own configurator to configure the sound cards - so alsaconf is not
strictly necessary. 

If you still want it you could downgrade to the Planet CCRMA version of
alsa-utils ("apt-get install alsa-utils=1.0.10-1.rhfc4.ccrma).
