I tried coLinux out a week or so ago but couldn't get the networking to work at first due to:
a) if u dont use DHCP with the TAP device, you _HAVE_ to reboot to change the IP address of it (in windows that is)
b) Windows XP didn't let me know that it needed the cd to install the internet connection sharing and just silently failed everytime :-|
Also, if you have any of the Usermode Linux images, they can be used for this without any modification except maybe changing the fstab to cobd# instead of ubd#.
Also, make sure you do _not_ do a startx because it will crash the entire system (at least on mine it did) with a stuck thread in the video card driver.
Overall, the networking is setup pretty much the same as a normal linux system inside the coLinux and a normal ICS in windows.
HTH, if you need more, just reply to this or goto the forum that they have setup for coLinux.
Originally posted by daftjames It's a bit fiddly, you need to run an X Server in Cygwin, and then make sure that KDE doesn't attempt to start a window manager. I usually just blow away /etc/X11/default-display-manager.
It's actually a lot easier to get Gnome working (it seems to crash less), just configure gdm.conf to disable all servers in the [servers] section.
