I understand how the DomUs send packets across the network using the
virtual bridges and such to access the phyical NIC from the virtual
world, but what about other devices?

For instance, is there some strange magic to get a DomU to recognise
USB devices like Flash Keys, USB Floppies/CDs or even USB Hard disks?

The internet has no government, no constitution, no laws, no
rights, no police, no courts.  Don't talk about fairness or
innocence, and don't talk about what should be done.  Instead,
talk about what is being done and what will be done by the
amorphous unreachable undefinable blob called "the internet
user base." -Paul Vixie
