This got me up and running pretty quick. Hope it helps someone.

***Make sure you have udev installed or this no workie***

1. Kernel Steps:

For 2.6 Make sure you have the following built in as modules <M>:

Code:

# cd /usr/src/linux
# make menuconfig

Device Drivers  --->
USB support  --->

<M>   Support for Host-side USB
<M>   EHCI HCD (USB 2.0) support
<M>   UHCI HCD (most Intel and VIA) support
<M>   USB Printer support


Exit and save your config then:

Code:

# make && make modules_install
# cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.6.9
# cp System.map /boot/System
# cp .config /boot/config-2.6.9 .map-2.6.9
# reboot


2. Make sure your modules are there:
