Hi Juan:

One way to get a bootable CD is to use a combination of isolinux and memdisk
to boot a floppy disk image.  I BELIEVE that this is the method most compatible
with different computer BIOS's.  What I do is boot the floppy disk image
(1.44 MBytes typically) and, if I need more storage, configure a CDROM
driver to access other files on the floppy disk.

I wrote some notes on how I create bootable DOS CD's from Windows
XP.  This can be done without a floppy drive using free tools.  If you
are interested, see 

http://k1ea.com/hints/Creating_a_Bootable_DOS_CD_V%201.5.pdf

I know of several people who have successfully created FreeDOS and 
MSDOS bootable CD's using this writeup.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Mark
