Question Wubi-Ubuntu like other distros?


Hello;

Wubi is Ubuntu's Windows installer, it installs ubuntu on a folder under a disk drive, not entire disk.

Is there another distros something like this feature?

Thanks.

The nearest I can think of is coLinux, it can be used to install other distros, but it's not as easy as Wubi.

Actually a long time ago BeOS used that idea. I think they stole it from zipslack by way of umsdos. Might still get umsdos to work on a fat partition.
