I don't have a Mac or Parallels. Does it even officially support DOS
at all? (Wikipedia says Parallels Desktop 8 does.)

A quick search shows this:  "How to install MS DOS 6.22 using
Parallels Desktop for Mac"

Maybe setup an FTP server and swap files via that (see VBox guide below).

At risk of giving you redundant advice (and making you download yet
another 100 MB), have you tried VirtualBox? At least, some of us here
have more experience with it (and FreeDOS). At least a packet driver
and networking works there for me.


Note that I know it's probably better to get Parallels working, but if
you can't do that, then for simplicity, if you can afford the
bandwidth, a suitable workaround might be to just use VirtualBox
instead. At least for now.
