<-- Hi Jim and all;  I have a VM on top of an old Asterisk box (host O/S 
is running CENTOS 5.3; Sun Virtual Box as the VM Engine and then XP as a 
guest).  I am running a D-STAR client in the XP VM, where I pass a USB 
sound fob from the host machine to the VM.

That works.... but.... I do hear some clicking in the audio, which I 
have not bothered to investigate - it could be a resource issue or 
something else - but the fact that I was able to pass a USB device from 
the host machine to the guest VM should provide you with some confidence 
to experiment further!

Cheers,

Ramesh.
