look for pre-install and post-remove options.
Then when you do
modprobe scsi-cd or whatever, it'll automagically load whichever
module you told it to. Then, instead of rmmod, do modprobe -r.
Just be prepared for the 10 second wait while the devices
wake up. I suspect you'll have some problems with loading
them seperately, so I'd suggest loading everything at once
(SCSI CD, Generic, Zip and tape devices)
