Question Debian and Colinux and fstab


If there is anyone here familiar with both Debian and Colinux, I would like to know how to make a Debian Installation boot both Standalone and under Colinux?

I have sort of an idea but I need some more info on how Debian's RC scripts are laid out as to when it mounts the filesystems.

For booting both standalone and under colinux, it is necessary to maintain two different fstab files. At boot time, the RC scripts determine which one to use.

Now there is a link here http://wiki.colinux.org/cgi-bin/Conv...Distributions, that explains for Gentoo but I'd like to know where in the RC scripts that I could drop in this code for Debian.

Oh, so inferring from your post, you can't have one debian installation do both? I've been considering using coLinux, but if won't allow my debian system to boot on it's own, then whats the point?

That link doesn't really anything new that colinux wiki site didn't already suggest. That person just puts both sets of mount points in one fstab. You can, of course use one fstab, but you get lots of errors when booting up. That's what I'm trying to avoid.
