usb_ehci.ko (2.6 kernels) or ehci.o (2.4 kernels) is the usb2
module. You don't need it, as the thing should fall back to ubs-1.0
The routine here on a primitive install is to modprobe usb-storage
(or storage.o on 2.4x kernels)and then install the stick & mount it
(/dev/sda1 usually). It should talk to you when you plug it in "Hello,
I'm a usb thingummy on usb bus 0:0:1"
If at first you don't succeed, update. There must be a few cdrs
with a distro on them in the University of Limerick somewhere.
