Thanks for replying. I have no problems building the kernel. I just want to check whether fuse is a supported configuration? I remember hearing that cofs has some namespace clashes with fuse?

Fuse is not supported per default configuration. Check this on your
running colinux:

$ zcat /proc/config.gz | grep FUSE
# CONFIG_FUSE_FS is not set

The "COFUSE" is the Colinux host filesystem. It's your windows
partition, you can configure it with "cofs=C:\coLinux" in your config,
read more in the file COFS.TXT on your coLinux installtion.  This
cofs-filesystem based on fuse, but this is not the "fuse_fs" for other

If you wand to use the real "fuse_fs" then you need to reconfigure the
kernel and rebuild the modules.
