Been a while since I did anything with Bootcamp - I prefer VMs rather
than dual-booting like this. However, you *should* be ok. FreeDOS
doesn't recognize NTFS partitions, so while these would show up as
allocated space, FreeDOS *shouldn't* think your NTFS partition was
"C:" and try to reformat it as its own. (Microsoft might do that to a
FreeDOS partition, however, so be careful.)

But I think your limiting factor is that Bootcamp is fairly simple,
IIRC. I experimented with Bootcamp on an Intel Mac a while back, and I
think it had trouble if I tried to put a bootloader on the PC side, to
boot more than one PC operating system (in my case, Linux, and
Windows.) Maybe Apple has changed that. I tried that not long after
Apple introduced Bootcamp, and we got an Intel Mac at work to
experiment on.
