Well, not entirely correct.  The footnote at the bottom of the home page

So it is not Debian that is doing this.

I think either the driver would have to be ported to 2.4 or CML2+OS
backported to 2.2.  Or at least it is my (perhaps mistaken) impression
that CML2+OS is Linux 2.4 specific.  If you want to know for certain,
you should write in the appropriate forum, which is the emdebian-discuss
mailing list:
