USB thumb drive emulation

Is there any way to emulate a USB thumb drive (including the UUID) to the Linux OS? A virtual USB thumb drive that Linux see's as a USB device.

Hmm, you migh be able to do something like that by creating an image of drive contained in a bximage container. bximage comes with the bochs emulator. I'm not sure about getting the UUID, though, but bximage has some interesting uses...
