I have a drive with three primary partitions and an extended one with 
two logicals in it. I boot via grub and boot linux out of one of the 
extended partitions so you can boot from one. However I happen to have 
freedos in a little 500 mb partition at the very begining so I have not 
tried to boot freedos from a logical partition.

however the command fro booting freedos via grub is:

# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for a non-linux 
# on /dev/hda1
title           FreeDOS
root            (hd0,0)
chainloader     +1

when setting up a grub command you need to remember that grub numbers 
your partitions from zero, not from one  - so first partition on the first 
harddrive is hd0,0 not hda1
