For debuging purposes it will be very usefull to add options for changing driver name instead of linux.sys.
Example:
colinux-daemon.exe --remove-driver-name colinux-0.80-00.sys
colinux-daemon.exe --install-driver-name colinux-0.80-01.sys

    This would not need.
    A colinux.sys must close to the same colinux-daemon.exe.
    So, hold any versions of coLinux in a separate directory, and you can do:

    cd .../coLinux-0.8.x
    colinux-daemon.exe --remove-driver
    colinux-daemon.exe --install-driver

    cd .../coLinux-0.8.y
    colinux-daemon.exe --remove-driver
    colinux-daemon.exe --install-driver

    It's very simple and I'm using this way for long time with multiple of coLinux versions.

    Henry,

    What if the coLinux-0.8.x Linux needed to remain running, wouldn't running
    colinux-daemon.exe --remove-driver shutdown the running Linux instance?
