Extract the boot sector from the ISO? Typically the image is a 2.88
floppy image, which you can then load with memdisk. And to clarify,
'Typically' is the iso images that use [Free/MS/PC/etc]-DOS. Typically
is also from my experience with my vendors, so that may not work for you.
I believe you can use WinImage to do this, I think Nero can as well.
isobuster is another popular choice. Of course these are all Windows
