I need to program a large number of USB thum drives with a specific group of software for distribution.  I have attached multiple 7 port hubs to a Windows XP-SP2 computer and have written a script to transfer the software from a folder to a specific set of Removable drives.

I have currently only configured a system with 21 USB prots.  
The USB spec says that I can have up to 127 ports connected to a single USB port on a system.
I want to connect a 7 Port USB Hub with an additional 7 port hub on each port for a total of 49 removable drives and then do multiples of that configuration.

What do I need to do to Windows XP to support this large number of USB ports?
Is there any software utility available to manage to coping and verifing of software to the USB devices.
Does Windows XP have any limits when using a large number of USB ports that I should be aware of?
