Actually FAT95 is an Amiga file system like each other and as such it can be stored in the Amiga partition table and you can boot from FAT partitions. However, it would still be an Amiga partition table and if you put this CF card into a PC it would not recognise it.

The author of FAT95 knew all that and he wrote a small utility which can create an Amiga partition table in the empty space between the PC partition table and the first partition. With this trick it is in fact possible to boot from a real FAT partition (real = created by Windows or another PC operating system). The utility is called boot95 and comes with FAT95.

Anyway FAT is not a good choice to store Amiga files because it cannot save all Amiga file attributes (namely the executable and script flags as well as file notes).
