Is there a way to switch to Linux from within windows. I hate to have to reboot all the time.I remember seeing something like this for Mac users on one of the tech shows. just wondering if it was possible to do so within windows?

Cgwin is an linux emulator - other distros offer CD's that you can boot off.

"coLinux currently doesn't support running an X server that requires a graphic adapter, because such virtual adapter doesn't exist at the moment" - CoLinux FAQ
