Not that I'm aware of.
SuSE GNU/Linux had an option to install onto a UMSDOS partition some
time back, as well as a "live CD" installation. There's also PHAT
Linux, as well as a number of other GNU/Linux distributions which were
intended for installation under Legacy MS Windows.
At a minimum, you'd need msdos, vfat, and/or umsdos support in the
kernel (compiled-in, not a module). I'd start poking around through the
the HOWTOs and possibly some of the Linux-on-DOS distributions to see
how they're configured.
Why do you want to do this? In general, you get much better
performance, functionality, and safety, running on a standard ext2fs
(or similar) partition.
