You can upgrade your kernel from 2.2.20 to 2.4.26 without too much 
stress. I did it, that's saying a lot.

However, IIRC tools like usbmgr aren't available in woody, so you'd 
either have to backport or compile from source (ick!) - so your kernel 
will recognise that there is a device there, but it won't know what to 
do with it.

I haven't touched Woody for a long time, but tonight I'll be messing 
about with my Microsoft Windows (ie: games) machine, which has Woody 
installed somewhere.
