Help needed with getting USB working on a new install

Hi all:
I have just completed a Knoppix install using the 3.2 version dated 2003-07-26 
EN. My hardware is a MSI KT3 ULTRA2 MBO with a AMD Athalon XP cpu. I booted 
the Knoppix cd with only the lang=us 2 option set. From there I did a hard 
disk install. I then rebooted and ran apt-get update/upgrade. I then 
rebooted. I then found that my USB hardware was not detected and installed. I 
have a Epson model 640u scanner and a Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000 usb webcam 
installed. Both items work under Linux and are supported. I have added the 
nopic and nospm option to my lilo append line. But still no joy. The only 
modules that show as loaded in the usb-uchi and usbcore. I did not see v4l 
and pwl that are needed for the webcam. Can anyone help me get the two usb 
items to work? I had thought of building a new kernel, but debian seems to 
need a few more than the normal download the kernel and do the usual things, 
any way I have only built a kernel 4 times in the past tries 1 to 3 did not 
work right. I was wondering if I could just install a new standard kernel and 
get it to work that way? Or are there other options? I am new to debian and 
so feel lost. All help greatfull
