That makes no sense. Are you saying that your USB hub and storage stuff
wasn't working with the Debian 2.6.17 kernels unless you had the full
desktop environment installed? If so, I can't say I share that experience,
a few weeks ago I reloaded a box with etch without any X or desktop
packages (but now running sid) and USB storage works just fine with it.
