I tested your OS with Virtual Box: FreeDOS is amazing ; and - most
importantly - it has a live floppy! Even today the floppies are
still being used, for example - as virtual floppies inside the
coreboot open source BIOS. Just imagine: your wonderful OS could be a
part of someone's BIOS build! (for coreboot supported motherboard,
maybe you have or could get one - see " Supported_Motherboards " page
at coreboot wiki)

If you already have a coreboot-supported motherboard, or a real chance
to get one, - wouldn't it be cool to be able to launch your own OS
straight from the BIOS chip? ;) With one simple command its possible
to add any floppy to coreboot BIOS build - and then you see it as a
boot entry! Multiple floppies could be added this way (as long as you
have enough space left inside the BIOS flash chip, luckily LZMA
compression could be used for the stored floppies to reduce their
occupied size)

I wish you good luck in your project, FreeDOS is awesome
Also it has been listed amoung Top 10 Notable projects at OSDev wiki
Would be happy to see its' story continued

Best regards,
