dd doesn't do anything like that. You may be thinking of hdiutil, which can indeed convert ISO images into other kinds of image. If you have what is supposed to be a bootable FreeDOS image, just burn it and try to boot from it.Mac OS X (10.6.5)
try the bootable fdboot.img available from
also, try the a.img inside the tar ball available from bochs website
in fact, if you run bochs instead of dosbox, then you should be able to use the images and configuration file that they provide for freedos.
in any case, you'd probably get better answers on freedos/doxbox/bochs websites than here. (they usually use dd to copy an img file to a floppy disk in /dev/fda or something like that)macbook pro 5,5, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
