    Cooperative Linux is the first working free and open source method for optimally running Linux on Microsoft Windows natively.
    More generally, Cooperative Linux (short-named coLinux) is a port of the Linux kernel
    that allows it to run cooperatively alongside another operating system on a single machine. For instance,
    it allows one to freely run Linux on Windows 2000/XP,
    without using a commercial PC virtualization software such as VMware,
    in a way which is much more optimal than using any general purpose PC virtualization software.

        The file exist in the google groups, on the alternate link:

        But, it is not a complete root filesystem for ubuntu8. It contains only a coLinux- and Xming- installer and some empty filesystems, and a description how to install or upgrade to Ubuntu 8.04
