    is there any chances to write back the colinux image to real harddisk partition..?

    how to do that..?

      Yes... Just set-up the HD space (make sure it's not an Windows partition, or a Partition that is in use/managed by Windows) as another block device, then follow the direction on the for how to enlarge images (basicaly do an cp -ax from the coLinux image to HD/Partition)

      You probably don't want to be in/booted on the image when you do this, you want to boot antoher image and mount the image you want to copy and the HD....

      but how about boot sector, the kernel, and initrd.gz, and modules how to make that..?

        You might be able to use dd in linux. Try attaching the HD to a seperate comp with the image you want copied and the HD you want to recieve the image copy. Then you could probably do something like `dd if=root.img of=/dev/hdb1` or some such command.

        Don't quote me on this, I'm not sure if it will even work. I seriously doubt this would work in Windows with the dd port. Windows likes to monopolize disk access.

        Wow, I really gotta watch the age on these. I don't know why this was at the top of the forum list.
