Oops - I forgot that the "OSE" version of virtualbox do not include
USB support, so the correct how-to would be:

1. Install VirtualBox
Download virtualbox:
After the file is saved, double-click and then click "install" - it
will ask for your password.

2. Run VirtualBox
>From menu: Applications->System Tools->Sun xVM VirtualBox
If you cannot find System Tools, log out, and log in.

3. Create a virtual Windows XP
Here are some minimum amounts:
196 MB RAM (I use 1Gb of RAM)
5 GB Harddisk (I use 8Gb disks)

4. Install Windows XP
Insert your Windows XP install CD and install...
