You can do it, though you are strongly advised not to do it. Features
like tablespace will not work on FAT, and data integrity cannot be
guaranteed in case of a crash.
The installer will not let you initdb on it. You can, however, install
without initdb:ing and then run initdb manually. Or you can install from
