Thank for the answer

ha the Linux way is really hard, too much trap
If you're running openSUSE 10.2 (or 10.1? I forget in which USBFS was
disabled), then you're out of luck unless you're willing to rebuild
your kernel with USBFS enabled.
the problem *is* USBFS! older threads just passed the buck between the kernel
and vmaware, then some kind soul provided the workaround:
as root type in a console:
mount -t usbfs /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb
after that all usb devices appear in vmware and you can manually
control "connecting" and disconnecting to them.
don't know how to make this automatic, if you reboot you will have to re-type
it. perhaps one of the gurus on the list can help do that.
