Good luck with that... all DOS installs where done back in the day on floppy disks mostly because CD drives were new and that was the de facto standard medium for installation.

If you can find the boot disks you might look at a program like MagicISO or something similar and create your own ISO from the boot disks.

DOS installs can be tough. Good luck with that.

The DOS install itself isn't difficult... but again, you are most likely not going to find an ISO of a DOS install, even the last MS-DOS install, 6.22, was on 3.5" disks. If you find one it will be one that someone else created an ISO of from disks.

Installing DOS is pretty straight-forward: Partition, Format, Install. Tweaking it can be a challenge, but again, it's DOS.. it doesn't have a lot of overhead.

You MAY be able to find an iso or maybe able to purchase something like PCdos but probably not any MS version... I believe you it would be PCDOS 2000 that you might have luck with but again no guarantees... dos of any kind is harder and harder to find.... another possibility is the freedos project but I don't know how complete that is.
