Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Heading in a different direction from its main rivals, Ubuntu Linux will use KVM as its primary virtualization software. Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Server both use the Xen virtualization software, a 'hypervisor' layer that lets multiple operating systems run on the same computer. In contrast, the KVM software runs on top of a version of Linux, the 'host' operating system that provides a foundation for other 'guest' operating systems to run in a virtual mode.

Oops, I'm wrong (just checked again) - I DON'T use "-std-vga" AND I have an ISO declared for the CDROM device (it doesn't seem to like /dev/cdrom if it's empty).

Win2003 32 bit does actually work fine for me under KVM.. .. but to your point it will crash otherwise. so ymmv

Interestingly I've been having difficulty installing an Ubuntu Server image under KVM/Ubuntu but that is a subject for the forums..
