It's a while since I used coLinux. Can you post (copy & paste) your configuration file?

Thanks. It looks different to my config files, as far as I can remember. Probably different colinux versions. So I can't help really. Have you tried the colinux wiki?

You would be better off starting a new thread, asking your new question, in the Red Hat forum.
