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.
