Hah hah.  http://www.bootdisk.com/ has download links for what purport
to be such things.  Good luck figuring out whether (1) they're
malware-laden, and (2) by what theory of law this escapes being
copyright infringement.

Speaking of those two concerns, FreeDOS recently reached 1.0, by the way.  

(Sadly, although I notice md5sum hashes published with their releases,
there's no gpg-signing, and in general not even any attempt at helping 
people verifiy that they're not downloading an intruder's trojan.  What
is this, amateur hour?)
