Topologilinux - [Running Linux inside Windows]: Based on slackware and colinux.  Last updated 1Q 2005.  Also runs native.  "Topologilinux is a free Linuxdistribution to be run on top or inside your existing windows system. The main thing with Topologilinux is that it does not require any partitioning at all. (uses a single file as linux root system)..

Topologilinux needs a PC 486 or higher with about 100MB free diskspace and about 8MB ram. If you want to install everything you need about 2,5GB free space. If you want to have a X system it is recommend to have a Pentium PC with 32MB ram or more. And If you want to use colinux and X in windows you will probably need a pention 300Mhz or above with Win2k and about 96Mb ram. .."
