Yes, I use virtio NIC with no apparent problem, but with the latest 
drivers from Fedora. In fact, I had previously some problems with e1000 
(the drivers available with windows 2008 iso seems to work, but in fact 
not correctly, and I had to use the ones downloaded from Intel 
directly). But I am not transferring big files, it is for example for 
domain controllers.

For file servers, I am still using physical machines, one reason being 
that I have much more storage space available.
