Hi Kurt:

I've been following this thread with some interest.  I think it's simpler to 
just install
FreeDOS in its own partition.  You can use a boot manager to select which OS to
boot at startup.  My favorite, because it is very easy to install and 
configure, is
GAG (gag.sourceforge.net).

Eric disagrees of course.  :-)

You could create three primary partitions and install FreeDOS, MSDOS, and

Let me know if you have any questions. For partition fiddling, I usually use a 
Linux LiveCD and a program called gparted (see www.sysresccd.org if you
are interested).

Good luck.
