coLinux (cooperative linux) for Windows OS

Just a quick note on coLinux, before I forget and spend yet another hour to figure it out. This is just for a quick setup.

Website: http://www.colinux.org/

  • install colinux. Use c:\colinux directory for easy setup
  • get the linux image at http://sourceforge.net/projects/colinux/files/
  • extract the image and put it on the coLinux directory
  • edit the example.conf file and change the cobd0 to point to the linux image
  • save the example.conf file
  • run colinux as a regular application: colinux-daemon.exe @example.conf
