IOW, you try a w2k guest on top of a wxp host?

It depends on what version you use. Win2k with service pack 1 seems to work fine
here. But Win2k sp3 is pretty hard to install.

I use a Linux host tho. 2.4 kernel.

Did you close qemu at that point and then restart it (with the same options) ?
Can't guarrentee it will work, but sometimes it seems to help.

For the paranoid, you can use savevm in the qemu monitor before you close it,
and restart it with the -snapshot option. If, say, installation decides to 
from the very beginning, you can just quit qemu again (snapshot will prevent
disk from being changed) and then you can use -loadvm option to load the
saved vm state, which will put you back to where you left off.
