Running XP Logically

I have been trying to run XP as a logical partition on my FC10-64 box. When I have gotten it running, it has been very unstable. I have only been able to get Virtual Machine Manager/Qemu to work. I am wanting to run ChessBase, which won't run under Wine.

Question #1:
When I get a virtual machine running, how can I back it up for easy restoration when it crashes.

Question #2:
I have tried the Sun Virtual Box, but it can't seem too read my cd with Win/XP on it. Any work arounds?

Question #3:
After several semi-successful attempts to get XP to run, when I try to install it now I get a Kernal Failure Message. any idea as to what could be wrong? Thx, Terry. This is the output to the dump:

Kernel failure message 1:

Hi Terry,

Is there any reason you can't use VMware Server ? .. it's generally pretty stable
