After starting the vncserver in coLinux, I also tried launching konsole
and kcalc to see if my problem was that there aren't any gui
applications running. When I type konsole at the command prompt, I get
the message: konsole: cannot connect to X server.

My new problem is that when I launch the vncserver, I only see a gray

Subject: [coLinux-users] Help: colinux starts and immediately shuts down
Please help me.
I was trying to follow the instructions here:
http://www.colinux.org/wiki/index.php/GettingStartedLong to get started.
I have been having problems getting the networking to work and had tried
it a couple of times. I decided to start over and uninstall everything.
Now when I double-click on the colinux.bat file, a command window pops
up and seems to scroll through the usual stuff, but then it immediately
shuts down. Can you help me trouble shoot/solve this problem please.
I am running Windows XP Pro. My networking situation is slightly
complicated. We have a router that needs to be 192.168.0.1, so I don't
think I can use that address for the colinux TAP connector. I am trying
to use the 1gb Debian file (I also tried the GenToo deluxe).
I don't know what information to provide, so please feel free to send me
