Ok. here it goes.
First, i'm taking of this networking method:
(Scroll down until you see "TAP with Windows Software Bridge")
colinux installer should have already installed the tap driver, and a network
inteface named "TAP Win32" or something like that should appear.
Usually, this would give a closed network between colinux and XP, on a defined
subnet. The trick here is to bridge this adapter with the physical one, a
feature that windows XP (Pro?) has.
So, if you are on the window where you see all the network adapters, you can
select both network cards (the physical one, and the TAP one), rightclick, and
a "Make bridge" option should appear.
Once bridged, Windows will show a third adapter, which from now on, is the only
one that Windows (software) see. In this third adapter, you have to configure
the IP of the windows machine, on the physical subnet. In your case,
Then, colinux should be configured with an IP on that subnet too. 192.168.10.200
The key point here is that bridging is like putting a software hub between the
physical adapter and the tap driver.
