Colinux only crashed my computer when I compiled a colinux kernel for the
first time (BTW, it immediately rebooted without a BSOD. Behold the power of
linux! ;-).
Just drop any initrd from the kernel initialization line, it works well
without it.

I also suggest you use a version from http://www.henrynestler.com/ (I'm on
0.7.1-hn11 but any version ought to work).

Colinux is building up towards X support, but you can always run an X server
on Windows and open a "remote" connection to the colinux env.
Loathing cygwin, I use the GPL'ed Xming
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/xming).

Contact me for my .config if you're stuck.
