set

ethernet0.present = "false"

and

usb.present = "true"

and cross your fingers.

USB detection in VMs is unreliable - especially with Live CDs

aren't you talkin about the configuration of your VM ?

So probably you should enter that into the configuration file of that VM (vmx)

Note:

mspaint - *bmp

vmware - *.vmx
