USB can be compiled as modules. I find the best way is to apply the
USB-backport patch to the pristine 2.2.14 kernel tree, then patch it for 2.2.15
and 2.2.16. This works well, and I'm using it now! (Also with the imon patch so
that I can use efm, and the emu10k1 patch for my SBLive!)
Does it have X on it?
