I may finally be getting somewhere with my new-ish dual boot system, using debian-backports. The 25 cent summary is: debootstrap your current coLinux distribution onto the target drive; chroot to it; add the backports to the sources.list; apt-get update; apt-get install debootstrap. That will let you debootstrap the next version, and so forth, onward and upward.

Now, actually booting into the damned thing is another story. So far I have not been able to run either lilo or grub from within coLinux, on this box. Sure seems like I've done it successfully on others. Probably in my blog somewhere...
