First off this is your third post regarding this subject. One is
sufficient. Use the "vanilla" kernel. I don't remember if USB can be
selected as a module to add to the kernel or not during the install.
Look for it. If it isn't there you will have to compile your kernel. I
know 2.2.18pre21 has USB support. Install the kernel-package to compile
your kernel the debian way. Read -
to get you started.
