WinXP fails to install with "Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check)" on Linux 2.6.22 hosts.

While installing WinXP SP2, the installation fails after the first reboot with the error "Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check)".

This has happened on two completely separate machines; one running Gentoo and the other running Ubuntu. In both cases, the host is running a 2.6.22 series kernel. The problem disappeared on the Gentoo machine after upgrading to a 2.6.23 series kernel.

I have found a workaround; setting "Enable Passthrough" on the CD-ROM device in the guest makes the error go away. I have no idea why.

Oops, that was 1.5.2, not 1.5.6.
