USB wireless keyboard / mouse

A quick question!

If the host machine uses a USB connected wireless keyboard and mouse, can
these be seen by a Virtual PC machine, even though USB is not supported?

I'm just putting together a new PC and would like to use wireless devices,
but need also to use Virtual PC.

Thanks in advance

Aloha Doug,

Yes. I use my MS Wireless Explorer mouse with VPC without any difficulty.

Yes, but they will not be seen as USB and/or wireless devices just
standard PS/2 devices. You should not try to install the actual
