Maybe you can use the open source coreboot/SeaBIOS projects?
It would be stupid to write your own BIOS from scratch, much better to
just take these successful implementations and use them

By the way, if you have coreboot-supported motherboard, it is already
possible with 1 simple command to include the FreeDOS floppy
to your coreboot+SeaBIOS build
