Re: [PLUG] Wine usb support (scanner)
I'd be reluctant to spawn that other OS as root.
If you want IAN support and wine-like integration, try virtualbox in seamless mode.

I guess qemu does have usb support (run with sudo or root). I probably never got far enough to research it more, as I would have googled it some, though I could try a newly installed disk image with qemu that might run for a month before it complains about licensing.
This also makes me think of another question.
If I were to run as root, and wanted /dev/hda to be read only for some application, could I do a hard or soft link to it using say /dev/myHda, then set the permissions to read only (even for root) on /dev/myHda? Then I would reference to /dev/myHda if I wanted it as read only?
