Hello,

coLinux image files have no partion sectors. That means coLinux is a raw copy from single partition of disk, like "/dev/sda1".
Qemu uses raw disk image from whole disk, partition table sectors plus data sectors, like "/dev/sda".

To use a coLinux image you need to add some sectors on top fot partion table informations (32256 bytes, as I ave seen in Qemu wiki http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/QEMU/Images#Mounting_an_image_on_the_host).

Boot from Hard Disk 0 failed
FATAL: Not a bootable disk

Please help me.

Yes, a filesystem can be used for other virtualization programs.
The only problem are the kernel modules that have to be related to
your new real kernel, not related to colinux kernel.
