    I've read that QEMU (qemu.org) is handy for a VM on pen drives ... supposedly runs pretty well without depending on root/administrator privileges.

It might be a bit more tricky on Windows, as is usual with things that aren't the "normal" way of doing things!
    I must've missed something ... no problem admin'ing 'Nix from Windows. Shares? SMB/Samba?

    NO, but it's more tricky, because you have to set up a Samba server on the Linux box, and then get Windows to connect to it, something that can suffer from weirdness depending on the particular version of Windows installed (hell, sometimes even getting Windows machines to communicate with other Windows machines using SMB is a pain). On Linux it's usually as simple as making sure the SSH server is running (which it is by default on some distros)

    My media server at home is a Ubuntu install. I installed Samba and made the share I wanted. I was able to connect to it with my Windows 7 machine just like any other network share. Maybe I got lucky?

    Probably. I've not had any major problems myself connecting to Samba shares from Windows, but I've known people who have, and just the other week was reading an article in Linux Magazine that spoke about this exact same problem.
