Following this article I had some trouble in network configuration.
I fixed it this way:
on Hosting OS (Windows Vista):
I left unchanged the TAP-Win32 network connection settings, but instead I set the flag "Enable Internet Connection Sharing" on my preferred Internet connection, then choose the TAP-Win32 connection on the Domestic Network connection drop down list, this will automatically set the address 192.168.0.1 to the TAP-Win32 connection.
living the colinux.conf file as in the article (eth0 setted to slirp for outgoing connection and eth1 set to tuntap for local private connection) I modified the /etc/network/interfaces file as below:
auto lo eth1 iface eth1 inet static address 192.168.0.40 network 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255 iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp
Now the two systems pings each other and coLinux share the Internet connection of the Host System
