you can not distribute these two things on the same media.
People from Be, Inc tested your insane theory - and failed
(with dire consequences).
I may be misremembering, but the article you link to reinforces my recollection that BeOS ran up against the bulk licensing agreements between Microsoft and OEMs, which forbade to sell dual-boot machines. However unfortunate that may have been, it doesn't directly bear on the question of bundling linux software on distribution media.
