You could mount a AosFS filesystem in a big file stored on any FAT(32) 
partition. --> See the Oberon for Dummies release for details. (This 
feature has not (yet) been integrated into Bluebottle)
You can also boot from a FAT partition but the startup will be very slow 
because there will be too many files in one directory for the filesystem 
to handle efficiently (there is no B-Tree structure in FAT directories).
