I have read three very useful blog posts this week
The first one is how to get CRM 2011 running on Virtualbox. The reason you might want to do this is because at the moment Hyper V only works on Server 2008, which means you cannot run vitual machines on your PC (easily), not to mention Virtualbox is free.
An blog page on how to set up remote debugging for CRM 2011
I do have a few blog posts myself on remote debugging which might be useful
I would also say you can debug your plugins using the new functionality in the plugin registration tool. It comes under profiling and it takes a little bit of time to get your head around how it should work but it does allow you to step through the plugin code, once it has run, so you replay the plugin execution and step through your code. If you want to do that check out the links below
