Mounting a file as a filesystem

Hi all,

I have two disks on my PC, hda=127 MB and hdb=1.6 GB. I am using hda for
Debian, hdb is Win95.

I installed Debian on hda as a test and promptly fell in love with it.
Unfortunately I earn my living developing for Win 3.x/Win 95 and so cannot
easily repartition my main disk.

I heard some noise on this list about setting being able to mount a file as
a filesystem. I would like to know how I can create say a 200MB file on hdb
(Win 95) and mount it as a filesystem on say /usr.

Is this possible? What do I need to do it?
