As others have already answered, this is impossibe.
But even if it would be possible, what would be the benefit of this?

If the database is rarely used, the linux server should be fine handling the
little additional load.
Anyway, if the database is under heavy load, having the database on another
system would slow things down drastically.

As you should see, you shouldn't even want to have these separated...
