I am very much thankful to both of you for advising me. I really dont have any excuse, I should have written all that in proper way.
As far as colinux is concerned I have installed coLinux with the Debian image file, and it is working fine. You are very much right that I have to go through source code but it is not an easy task to understand the code of someone else. Sometimes it happens that you forget your own code if it is not properly commented. I have only one brief document named as "Proceedings of the Linux Symposium" volume one, which has been very helpful in getting the design details of the cooperative linux, but it does not inculde indepth details. I need such type of documents for getting good grasp on Colinux.
Hopefully you will help me.

I'm much in agreement with Ben - if you want to learn about anything,
read the source code. It will tell you much more than documents ever
will. I know myself when I write applications, I add features that to
me are second nature (i.e. that you can right click on certain widgets
and it does 'stuff') but I forget to put them in the documentation.
Getting coLinux up and running isn't hard - even source compile is
quite easy (IMHO). So you can try and break stuff to see exactly how
it works (although coLinux is a complicated beast, if your willing to
spend the time you can work out how it works). The list archives are
also a valuable resource with technical discussions on the
technologies in use as well as sometimes very detailed bug reports.
Don't be so lazy, work out the information yourself. I do realize that
you do need a certain amount of documentary evidence from others works
to reference at times, so it can be difficult in that regard - but I
think asking for someone to help just you is a bit much. Even so, I do
believe list emails are available as references. CoLinux is still in
development, its worthless writing documents, especially when things
could quite easily change. But if you'd like to write some
documentation, I don't think any would object (as long as it was of a
And if your writing any sort of University level document, your
English should be more advanced than that - remember, perfect practice
makes perfect actions. If your not going to write properly all of the
time, you will find it harder to write properly in the future. I have
seen people write essays using SMS' abbreviations (like plz) and not
realize the mistake. This is not the way to do things, and journals
(or your lecturers) will ignore, fail or reject you. In which case
there is no point doing any work,
