[lug] Making Modules stay on reboot

I'm trying to make my masqing firewall accept FTP without problems.  I've
found that if I load ip_masq_ftp.o with insmod my ftp through the firewall
now works.  However, as soon as I restart the box, I have to reload this
module.  How can I make it permanent?
I've tried adding this line to my modules.conf file:
alias IPFTPMasq ip_masq_ftp

but after a reboot, I do a lsmod, and it's not loaded.
