USB is, of course, a matter of one's kernel, not (particularly) one's 
distribution.  The Linux kernel's USB drivers have been developed in the
2.3 beta kernels, and have been backported to the latter 2.2 stable
kernels:  http://www.linux-usb.org/

Some distribution packagers elect to include beta drivers in the
prepackaged kernels their installers use.  Red Hat Software may do that:
I don't really do Red Hat 7, having a fondness for binary compatibility.

In any event, one is _in no way_ limited to the driver support in one's
distribution's default kernel.  That's the sort of thing gcc is there
Cheers,                                      "Reality is not optional."
