You may be able to pull the same trick I did with USB for the wifi or
other hardware. Basically, use dmdiag.exe to figure out the device
name under Windows, "bind" it to a block device in the .xml file, and
then access it within colinux as /dev/cobd[0-9].
Let us know how it goes.

You could run Linux with Windows under VMWare or maybe Bochs. Not
quite side-by-side, but close.
