Status update:

I now have a working VirtualBox VM with DR-DOS 7.01-06, the last
stable version from the DR-DOS Enhancement Project, which includes
FAT32 support.

It's a bootable hard disk image, with the DR-DOS multitasker and
ViewMax enabled: in other words, a multitasking FAT32-capable FOSS
DOS, complete with a GUI.

I'm currently working on turning it into a bootable USB key as well,
but there do seem to be some problems with that. I've managed it once,
with PC DOS 7.0, but not again, and I'm not sure what I'm doing
differently. Anyway, that's a separate consideration for now.
