Missing modules aliases (again)

Here's a couple of error messages I get. I guess I need the aliases to
put in my /etc/modules.conf to fix it.

Jul 18 09:42:50 andrewes modprobe: Can't locate module binfmt-0

Could some kind soul tell me where this information is listed? Every
time I see one of these questions answered, I go digging for the list,
but never find it.

If it's not a list, then a method? A hint? A clue? Got any crackers?

BTW: For those of you wondering the same things, I have found the key
to this message:

Jul 16 11:17:34 andrewes modprobe: Can't locate module block-major-22

Look in /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt, find the device
number 22, look at the "block" section, and you find "Second Hard
Drive". This message resulted from trying to mount /dev/hdc1, or
something like that. So if I knew that my second hard drive interface
card was a XYZ-2200, and the module name was xyz-22xx, then the
/etc/modules.conf fix would be this:

alias block-major-22 xyz-22xx # Module for second hard drive

I just haven't figured out those binfmts yet.
