the problem *is* USBFS! older threads just passed the buck between

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.

Well, on my SuSE Linux 10.0 system, I've never had to do this to be able
to access USB from a VMware guest os (Windows XP, namely).
