Question about modprobe and blacklist

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello there! I'm asking this question mostly because I do not know exactly how to go about getting the answer. This isn't a problem, really, but when I boot my system modprobe automatically loads 'psmouse' module for the touchpad on my laptop. Which is great, and would be really great if I didn't happen to have a wireless mouse around. I personally find that the touchpad gets in the way and I've always just used rmmod to remove the psmouse module. So my question is, if I were to blacklist the psmouse module, would I be able to load with modprobe? It seems like blacklisting the module is too (HowTos)
