Since I'm doing my development mainly on MacOSX, I'm waiting the
release of the product version of VMWare on MacOSX. So I'm just using
"VMWare Server" on Windows for a while. It seems that it detects
the USB devices, but I'm not sure if it can use it as a boot device.
Also I saw VMWare Workstasion 6, but I'm not sure how it can do boot
from a USB disk because it does show only the floppy as a removable
devices to be used in the boot sequense.
