    I am using Debian linux. Can I have more than 1gb space under CoLinux?

      The files attached to cobd# in the colinux config file are equivalent to partitions on a hard disk. If you make a huge file and attach it to codb# in your colinux config file, then you can run standard linux partition oriented commands like mkfs and mount on it.

      I'm running Debian, and I followed the instruction at colinux.org for expanding the partition:

      http://www.colinux.org/wiki/index.php/ExpandingRoot

      The instructions worked fine.   One point to note that was not mentioned explicitly in the instructions, but is  I guess pretty obvious, that after running shutdown on co-linux. you have to copy your debian partition file to the cygwin directory to execute the cygwin commands against the partition file, and subsequently copy the file back after using cygwin. No big deal
