Hmm, I'd try with the same numbers. Since mbrbm works equally with both m$-dos and FreeDOS, I guess that beginning sectors are composed the same way. Apart from install CDs, the only bootable image that FreeDOS-1.0 actually offers for download is 1.4M fdboot.img: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/distributions/1.0/ Otherwise, I don't see any other way to obtain sectors of the full system but to actually install FreeDOS somewhere (on virtual machine or on a real slice).
