A recent post (end of January) mentioned that Dell now puts a FreeDOS CD in 
the box of some of its low-end PCs.

A related post in grc.techtalk (a discussion group at grc.com) regarding 
Dell bundling Linux on pcs indicated that, at least sometimes, Dell charges 
more for a system with FreeDOS than for the identical one with Windows XP.   
This is to make up for the money they lose by NOT preinstalling certain 
bundled Windows software.

Here's the link to the discussion and price quotes.
