Getting VPC to see the Modem

I’m running Windows 2003 Server inside Virtual PC on my WinXP box which has a USB Broadband modem attached to it. But I cannot figure out how to get the virtual server to access the modem. It doesn’t see the modem as it has no virtual USB ports. Ben Armstrong [http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/] has a great post on enabling Shared Networking (NAT) [http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2005/01/06/347965.aspx] which sounds useful but isn’t. So the question remains. I want to get this OS activated and patched. How do I get it to see the Internet. There is no other network. Just this box. Any ideas anyone?
