1. Go to http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanagerdl.html , and download the most recent .zip .
2. Extract it, and navigate to /intsall/plpbtin.iso .
3. Add the ISO in the VM, and install PLoP to the virtual hard disk (option 1)
4. Now, when you turn on the VM, it gives you an option to boot USB, Floppy, Hard Drive, and CD.
