It is not a far-fetched requirement: the reverse, i.e. running windows
binary under linux is often possible and regularily used, but it
requires a specific tool for the job, in the linux case wine, that
translates every system call.

It's not an easy task, and I doubt that there is something for windows
to do so, but there may be a solution using some virtualizing layer
and a minimal linux installation, depending on what is needed from the
red hat executable.
