There are module dependencies, ie module b needs module a loaded first. 
You're better off using modprobe instead of insmod usually, as it tries to be 
more automagic about it and load them for you. Try this
# depmod -a
# grep emu101k.  /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/modules.dep
This will tell you dependencies.

Lspci-v for pcibus  or isapnp & pnpdump for isa bus tell you what option sets 
the card is configured for. I load my normally comatose opti card this way
 insmod soundcore #basic sound support
 insmod sound	# basic sound support
 insmod ad1848	#wss support
 insmod uart401	# separate uart - not always needed
 insmod opl3	# separate synth - not always needed
 isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf # card wakes up at this point, and takes it's options
 modprobe mad16 # doesn't need options now. Otherwise it bellyaches about 

On another machine, I get away with the last line only;  this line
# modprobe sb

loads soundcore, sound, ad1848, opl3, and sb.o via modules dep and
