I'm pretty sure I've made plain old MS-DOS 6.xx compatible FAT-16
partitions with Win 98. I remember when I first used it's fdisk it asked
me if I want to make all partitions FAT32 (not in those words though,
they just said if you have a big hard disk say yes or something). If you
answered yes, there's probably a way to go back and answer no. Also, you
could just download the Debian rescue disk and when the CFDISK part
comes up you could make your FAT-16 partition then.
