Linux on a FAT partition?
I was wondering if there's a way to install linux on a FAT partition. I was reading a bit of info on linux filesystems and it said that many filesystems could be supported because of something about adding the drivers blah blah blah. Is there a way to do this for FAT? I am willing to put it on a separate partition. I am using Windows 98 and Kanotix (a variant of Debian). If someone can tell me why ext3 is so much better (and find a program to mount ext3 partitions under windows 98) then maybe I won't need to use FAT.
