But whats the fuzz all about?
In short, modules are a clever way to store music in an efficient manner. As a comparison: An old Amiga had 1MB of RAM back then (only half of it would have been usable for the music data), something like a standard mp3 file today can be 4-8 MB in size. So it wouldn't fit into the memory at all...of course an Amiga of that time would be much too slow to decode mp3 anyway - but that's a whole other topic :)
As always, Wikipedia
knows a lot more about this topic, of course.
