Solved.  Essentially, you need to set up and mount the usb file system 
and set the right permissions.  I've written a note about how to do this 
derived from various HowTos, and will post it if anyone's interested.

I'm now able to update my TomTom Go in virtual WinXP.  Phew.  (Pain in 
the proverbial, seeing as the Go runs on GNU/linux but TomTom only 
offers a Win-based updater. :-(   )

Thanks for all the help.
