I don't know the answer, but I am interested. I have vmware 5.5 on a
LFS host running XP as a client and I keep getting errors about usb.
The usb mouse works though. I also get an error about /dev/dsp being in
use. That may be a KDE issue and I haven't investigated.
If you find something, please post it.
