It will be a little slower, but shouldnt be very slow, as although it

Colinux does not have direct access to hardware mounts, you actually
have to specify them in the config file using windows HAL partition
Use something like this in the xml:
<block_device index=3D"4" path=3D"\Device\HarddiskVolume4" enabled=3D"t=
Which will mean the device is in /dev/cobd0 or /dev/cobd/0 - and needs
to be mounted then. However - note that while you can mount
non-windows partitions, you should not try to mount a windows one and
use NTFS on it, as windows will freak out. It would be better to use
SAMBA, although you may be able to use COFS - watch out though, COFS
is still considered experimental, and may glitch and screw up parts of
your windows file system.
Have you read the colinux wiki yet? http://wiki.colinux.org - there is
a fair bit of information on this there - including how to actually
find the volume or disk numbeers form windows.
