I got a Blue Screen Of Death on reboot.
Where are events like this logged on Windows XP and how can I view the history of the BSODs?

BlueScreenView by Nirsoft is a much better solution than Event Viewer; Event Viewer does work, but this provides the information in a better format and much faster.
If you have your pc set to capture minidumps, you can try Who Crashed, it automates looking for some of the common causes of BSODs.
If the event log doesn't help (which it often doesn't for BSODs), and you're feeling adventurous, you can also set your system to automatically save a minidump of the crahs, and then use WinDBG to determine exactly what caused it.
