Well, O.K., but if you really look, the intention of FreeDOS was to be as compatible as possible without violating any copywrite. And the did pretty much succeed, the only real difference that I have noticed is a few minor differences in the config.sys file. It can even (with the proper statement, forget if it's in config.sys or autoexec.bat, but one of them) report itself to be whatever version you want of that other OS.
But anyway, the point was that the method mentioned can use a floppy image from any OS that can boot from floppy, and use that image to make a bootable CD using floppy emulation.
