i downloaded freedos Beta 9RC5 and i tried to install on a pc with a
creative 52x cd5233e.

i used a boot floppy because my pc doesn't boot from cdrom.

which bootfloppy? downloaded/obtained from where?

the result is: error on access to the cdrom, nothing installed and the cdrom
is damaged and does not work any more.

"does not work anymore" -> what does not work anymore? opening the tray? closing tray? reading data? removing the cd-disc? more details please.

the question: do you think it is possible that the cdrom driver used by freedos damages the firmware of that cdrom?

DOS is not advanced enough to do that. I can only think of Linux and Windows sometimes messing up modems, network and cdrom firmware.
