Oh, that's a surprise.

I needed a DOS image myself, for this and other purposes.  I ended up 
creating a 10MB file which I used as the hard drive image for a virtual 
machine guest (KVM).  I booted that virtual machine from the FreeDOS CD 
and installed DOS to the hard drive.  Afterward, I could load that hard 
drive using memdisk from either GRUB or PXE with syslinux.  It's come in 
handy quite often.  It's certainly more complex than a vendor provided 
script, but it does work.  If you're interested I can offer more 
guidance in that direction.
