Hey, there should be a version of colinux that basicly
runs a full version of fedora core on top of windows.
Also it needs to be easy to setup.
I know this is alot to ask but fedora core is awsome
and very useful.

I would like to switch to fedora core as my primary
operating system but numerous things keep me from doing
so. This seems like a good solution to my problem and
I'm sure there are allot of other people in the same boat.

    Maybe it would be more smart to just make some base root fs
    image and some scripts so that the user could install any
    flavor of linux he/she wants by just downloading a iso and
    extracting the vmlinux from the iso. I'll look into it.

    I have made a Fedora Core 5 2GB image. Anyone wanting to
    test it for bugs are welcome as Henry is at holidays :

    Image is in rar as the host seems to have 260mb diskusage
    limit :P

    Any future version might get published at ftp.funet.fi.
    Return email from staff pending...

    Its interesting you should mention that furyy, as it seems
    to be very similar, or may contribute to what this post:
    http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?t=460083&highlight=boot+iso
    was asking.

    It would be pretty amazing (but it may require more
    integration work) to get colinux to be able to boot from a
    Knoppix or similar ISO.

    The images work well, but it would be really nice to figure out a way to run anaconda under coLinux. Then it would be possible to just do a network install of any Fedora, Red Hat, or CentOS version.

    Since network and disk (scsi) drivers are listed as PCI device. This should work now.
