Hi Lukas,

I used QEMU (http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/download.html) to
create a blank disk image
and installed DOS 6.22 then copied the image file to the pxelinux folder
and DOS boots up perfectly.  Didn't try Win 9x.

Additional cool stuff to mount the disk image:

losetup /dev/loop0 /path_to/diskimage.img -o 32256 (if loop0 doesn't

mount -t vfat /dev/loop0 /mountpoint

umount loop device
losetup -d /dev/loop0

(For Reference:

Good luck!
