You can heimdall it just like you can heimdall the zImage for kernels for Samsung-derived ROMs. Not sure if you can use SGS Kernel Flasher - haven't tried that.

When the phone is in download mode:
Code:
heimdall flash --kernel boot.img
I can't help you as far as Heimdall installations in Windows - I'm a Linux user.
