comment USB Driver on a Windows (x32) on Windows (x64) using Virtualization/Emulation
No, passthrough does not mean using the hosts drivers. The only reason VirtualBox requires the host to have a driver is so that it can tell Windows to "unplug" the device so it can be used by the guest exclusively. The hope is that VMWare Workstation or Parallels Desktop 4 can select USB devices for passthrough even if they don't have drivers under your x64 host.

comment Can you use a USB dongle inside a VMWare ESX Virual Machine?
Yes, VT-d would work, but ESX/ESXi 4.1 support passing individual USB devices to guests, so there's likely no need to involve VT-d.

Yep, quite special. He built the first dept mail server in the early 90s.

comment JBOD SAS adapter for Solaris/Nexenta on Dell PowerEdge 2950?
I ran my Dell SAS6i/R in a 1950 III (testing) and then in a 2950 III (6mo production) but settled on a Sun x4250 (LSI 1068E too) with its SSD friendly 16x2.5inch backplane since my 1950/2950 have the 3.5inch backplanes. If you dont have a 8x2.5 backplaned 2950, you can mount SSDs in a free PCI slot (or just hanging out), use a Y-Cable for power from the DVD and attach to one of the internal SATA ports.

comment Best use of a RAM disk?
I use a ramdisk for amavisd temp files on my mail server (running Zimbra), not only is it in production it's vendor supported to boot.
