Yes, you can attach more than one mouse. It definitely works with two USB mice, or one notebook trackpad and USB mouse. Both will control the same mouse pointer. I don't know if you can dedicate one of the two a virtual machine.

Just add a USB filter to exclude one of the USB mouse. – Sathya Jan 1 '11 at 3:52
@Sathya: What is a USB filter? – paradroid Jan 2 '11 at 3:16
@paradroid VirtualBox allows you to set up filters so as to allow specific USB devices to be accessed by the guest – Sathya Jan 2 '11 at 3:33
@Sathya: Oh I see. Thanks. – paradroid Jan 2 '11 at 3:34
@paradroid you're welcome! – Sathya Jan 2 '11 at 3:41

I've been able to use two mice at the same time with one operation systems (Windows).

Why don't you just try it out and see -- shouldn't hurt anything.
