I just discovered Sunbird. Nice!

Is it possible to store Sunbird data on a FAT32 partition so that I can boot into either Windows or linux and access the same data (like one can with Thunderbird)?

I hope there's a way, or if not, this will be introduced, as not having this feature prevents me from making full use of Sunbird.

Also, what's the difference between Sunbird and the calender extensions for Firefox and Thunderbird? Which is the one to use?

Thanks.

Yes. I routinely share my calendar data between Windows and Linux, and between Sunbird and the calendar extensions. As you mentioned, I store my calendar.ics file on a FAT32 partition and can access from either Windows or Linux.

I just set up each program to point to the data file. Some of these links can probably better explain how to do this than I can.
