I have a particular flash drive that when unplugged from Windows XP Pro reboots the system. The problems occurred on 3 computers running XP Pro but on Windows 2000 is just fine.

Not all flash drives are built equally.  Do other drives work without problems?  

Powered USB hubs can help buffer the power draw, and make sure you have SP1 installed, which has USB updates.
