Can't offer any advice on debugging, but I can tell you that I've just had a 
successful install of XP. And all appears to be "walking" just fine. :)

I installed on a fat32 fs, overwriting an existing W98 install with the 

$qemu -fda /dev/fd0 -hda /mymnt/qemu/qdrive.img  -cdrom /dev/cdrom1 -boot d -m 
256 -enable-audio -user-net -pci

so perhaps the -pci option on install will help.
