Hi:

I've been fiddling with bootable DOS CD's.  I've even created a
mini "How-to" that creates a 2.88MByte floppy disk image, creates
a bootable CD image, and boots it.  You can add a CDROM driver
if you like and use the rest of the CD.  I'll be glad to send it to
you if you like.  It's a rough draft, but I think the process is well described.

It can be used with DOS 6.22 or FreeDOS.
