In this case, you will copy the kernel to the DOS/Win partition, and
use a command like:
c:\loadlin\loadlin.exe c:\loadlin\vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb3 ro vga=7

Only in the sense thast the kernel must reside on a dos partition. The
rest of Linux can reside anywhere else.

Linux cannot run in FAT32, nor can it read or write FAT32 (at least
not without a patch). But Linux in an ext2fs partition can be booted
by Loadlin in a FAT32 partition (if you copy the kernel to that
partition - perhaps via a floppy).
