There is a document on this: the Win95+Win+Linux mini-howto.
You can find it on http://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/mini/Win95+Win+Linux
and many other places.

I browsed the document myself, and it says it's rather tricky to get it running with only one drive.

Maybe you can get away with booting Linux from floppy, and using whatever utility you are using now for the double boot.
I must admit I never tried it myself.
