YES INDEEDY DO!
from the FreeDOS FAQ:
> The goal of the Free-DOS project is to create a free MS-DOS compatible
> operating system. It will be available in both executable and source
> form, and distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
> Free-DOS will run on all machines, from XT's to Pentiums.
> Free-DOS currently has a functional kernel, shell, and many of the basic
> DOS utilities. Development is continuing.
just be sure to share your high-speed slack-giving commands with the rest
