VMware-server-1.0.5-80187.tar.gz no USB support
VMware-server-1.0.5-80187.tar.gz has no USB support. Everything else seems to work just fine. IS there a way to make my usb stick work with this.?

IIRC, edit as sudo/kdesu the file /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh and uncomment these four lines so:
# Magic to make /proc/bus/usb work
mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs
domount usbfs "" /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644
ln -s .usbfs/devices /dev/bus/usb/devices
mount --rbind /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb
Also append the line
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto 0 0
[Note that this is only a workaround. The preferred method is not to use /proc/bus/usb and should be used when supported by the VM software.]
After that, do
sudo /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh start
sudo mount -a
and restart VMware to see if the USB device is seen. Else, try after a reboot.
