load(lin) -- the opposite

loadlin can boot linux from windows ......( maybe you can't boot the install CD / floppy)
I need the opposite way out........
I need to boot a Windows CD that can't be booted from startup...........
is there any way/trick to do the reverse action?
i.e. to boot the Windows installation CD from linux..........or maybe from another windows
