      1. Inside coLinux you can install programms in same way of native linux.  This is "apt-get ..." for Debian.  Or download source, and then the linux typicial steps ala "./configure && make && make install".

      2. You can access from coLinux into Windows host via cofs, or with network shares (SMB).

      Please read the for details.
