Redhat 5.1 and later now supports fat32.  The latest version of the kernel is 2.0.36.  This will support it.  

I think SUSE Linux also supports fat32.  It is pretty close to Redhat.

You can buy RedHat for around 6.99 at http://www.cheapbytes.com/

All you have to pay for is media & shipping and handling.
