My goal is to boot DOS/FreeDOS via memdisk, do a few things and disable 
the virtual floppy created by memdisk and continue to boot the local 
hard disk or an etherboot .com file.

So is there a way to delete the virtual floppy and load a .com file 
afterwards (probably not because there is no longer a ramdisk to store 
it) or a way to combine the program that deletes the virtual floppy with 
the etherboot .com file?

Here is a related question:
How do I delete the ramdisk and continue to boot the local hard disk/ 
floppy/ cdrom?
