On a P4 Model 521 neither /noexecute=OptIn nor /noexecute=OptOut with colinux excepted, set via Performance Options GUI as suggested by the two links below, worked to avoid blue screen. Only putting /noexecute=AlwaysOff in the boot.ini file allowed me to start colinux. I'd much prefer OptOut so if there's a fix please let me know.
