The question one of kernel-support, as opposed to Debian support.  You
need to check and see if the kernel supports it.  If not, then there may
a patch somewhere that you can get it running with.  If it is supported,
you need to see if the pre-packaged Debian kernels include the module
or the support for it.  If not, you will need to compile one yourself.
