    I'm no database expert, but as far as I know, if you're doing a client/server database program for a LAN, you only need to choose a database that runs on the server. The clients can use other Java-compliant OS's regardless if the database "runs" on them or not. If you want to create a program where the server may be Windows or Linux, then that's a different story, but many database engines will work on different platforms, for example, Wikipedia states about MySQL:

    MySQL works on many different system platforms, including AIX, BSDi, FreeBSD, HP-UX, i5/OS, Linux, Mac OS X, NetBSD, Novell NetWare, OpenBSD, OpenSolaris, eComStation, OS/2 Warp, QNX, IRIX, Solaris, Symbian, SunOS, SCO OpenServer, SCO UnixWare, Sanos, Tru64 and Microsoft Windows. A port of MySQL to OpenVMS also exists.
    Anyone -- please correct me if I'm wrong!
