Got My USBs Back in VirtualBox

Well, since I upgraded to Hardy, I couldn't get my USB devices to work in VirtualBox and I was almost forgetting it once had such feature : )

I've been very lazy because if I just had googled it like I did today, my life could have been more colourful. If you suffer from the same problem and haven't bothered fixing it yet, here is a fix I found on ubuntu-unleashed.

After adding yourself to vboxusers group and uncommenting a few lines in /etc/init.d/, find group id of vboxusers and add the following to /etc/fstab
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=VBOXUSERS_ID,devmode=664 0 0 
Mount it and celebrate the reunion.
