I'm experiencing crashes also.
Whenever I do something somehow disk-intensive (usually that's when I do
something intensive on the NET share), the WinXP crashes and the window
just disappears - no bsod, nocrash dump, nothing (and no warning ;) ).
*pouf* no more windows... then I don't use windows anymore ;)
I'll give kvm a try one day...
