if coLinux is fully registered as a service, it can be easily managed from the windows control panel, without necessarily requiring console commands to be executed manually by the user
this might actually be a good idea?
colinux already runs just fine as a service, at least it did the last time I checked (before I moved to Vista x64). There are a ton of different programs to register services, I always used cygwin cygrunsrv to do it but others like srvany from Microsoft should work too.
still installing it by default as a service that can be managed from the control panel would be pretty intuitive
having this would definitively improve the level of integration for colinux under Windows
this is obsolete, you can easily register it manually from the console by using --install-service
possibly, the OP was referring to the way coLinux is by default installed?
In other words, was this supposed to be about the INSTALLER offering a service-option?
This is not possible from installer. The installer has no information about your configuration (cobdX Blockdvices, ethX network devices).
You need first create a runable config file and than you can use this config file to create a service.
I think, it might be an idea to provide a way to configure coLinux dynamically using some form of wizard that is provided during the installation itself, which could be based on a standard template to allow customization without resorting to the shell
