blacklisting modules in anaconda

I'm attempting to blacklist a specific kernel module (lpfc, for an emulex fc hba) and have not found a way to do it.

I'm using the vmlinuz and initrd from the rhel5.3 iso (doing a usb install) and have modified the kernel boot parameters to include blacklist=lpfc (found it on a fedora forum) but anaconda is not honoring the parameter.

Any ideas?
