It's not a problem with anything you did.  I imagine this is a Redhat box?
To fix it, create/modify the file /etc/conf.modules and add:
	alias net-pf-4 off
	alias net-pf-5 off

That will make the messages from modprobe/kerneld go away.  I think I had 
this problem in Redhat 3.x...  That is the 'real' fix listed on Redhats
web pages.
