Ah I see the bottom part of my earlier response confused you, my apologies.

There's FreeDOS kernels only supporting FAT16 on which you'd have above 
issue yes. However by default the FAT32-enabled kernel is used, thus 
limiting you to slightly over 2000 GB total capacity. FreeDOS can 
see/use FAT32 partitions up to this 2000 GB size each.

All in all, every normally used harddisk will work. Just don't buy a 3TB 
or 4TB harddisk if intended for usage with DOS.
