        In the readme.txt file there is something about a Ubuntu7.bat but this file is missing. It would be helpful for users not very familiar with coLinux.

          Sorry, yes, I know. Was a mistaken by me. Please read the "notes" at

          * Create a file Ubuntu7.bat with this entries:
            REM The ^ at end of line does continue the long command line under NT
            colinux-daemon kernel=vmlinux ^
             initrd=initrd.gz ^
             cobd0=Ubuntu-7.10.ext3.2gb.fs ^
             cobd1=swap128.fs ^
             cobd2=ubuntu7os.iso ^
             eth0=slirp ^

      Great. Many thanx. I can't get it to work as i want it yet (through a .conf file which resides in a subfolder, along with the .fs images) but it works through the command-line. The display fonts however are terrible. Is there a way to set the display font? I'm using XP SP2.

        Answering myself.

        Set the following environment variable:
          Lucida Console:12

        It wasn't that easy to find though... :( I expected to find something in the site's FAQ but... no luck. I found it after some time, googling and searching through the text docs in coLinux's installation dir. Perhaps the installation should set that variable by default.
