I wonder if your system installed a CONFIG.SYS file? This is what sets
the path to the COMMAND.COM shell. Can you boot from the install
media, drop to a shell, and check if there's a C:\CONFIG.SYS file?

Otherwise, the standard install location for the FreeDOS COMMAND.COM
is C:\FDOS\BIN\COMMAND.COM (if I recall correctly .. I don't have my
FreeDOS system running right now)
