Well, assuming that the modules for USB were built as modules (they usually are), issuing a 'lsmod' at the command prompt should show you whether the modules are currently being loaded or not. When I do it, I get the following modules ...

usbcore
usb-storage
uhci

At a minimum you should have usbcore loaded. If it's not there, try loading it with 'modprobe usbcore'. You may have to go poking around the /usr/src/linux/.config file to see if it's been include in the kernel that came with your Debian install.
