I think at the present time thats about the best your gonna get!

I'm thinking less like cofs, more like the networking and console support. I would imagine using cofs would generate a lot of disk through-put. My understanding at present, as I've never really looked at the source ;), is that the daemon catches serial output to display on the console. What we really would want is a daemon which catches the line-out to receive pure analog? output or a digital output to receive PCM data which could be sent straight to the real sound card on the host.
I downloaded the source code of a recent snapshot, coLinux-0.7.1-20070326-src.tar.gz, from SourceForge and the, rather old, source code to VNCAudio and in opening one file, vncsound.c in the viewer there is a tiny little problem...it's all for a linux client. I'm going to have a look at the actual virtual sound card side of things to see how it is done first to firstly see how it is done and secondly to see if my skills are up to the job. I'm still pretty new to programming :( and even newer to coding anything for Linux.

Yeah, VNC was my original solution, then Cygwin/X using XDMCP and then Cygwin/X using X over SSH using Putty.
