Uhoh. Scared now.

After my Hoary installation died, I've just wiped my Ubuntu box:
installed bigger disks (2 x 10GB instead of 2GB+3GB) & an old AGP
card, installed DR-DOS 7.03 in a small 32MB partition at the front of
the drive & then added Xandros Business Desktop 3.02.

Xandros' LILO boots DR-DOS fine, I can report that. 

However, I was about to add the Breezy preview to this. Now I'm
worried I'll lose DR-DOS. Better ensure I have a standby boot
mechanism first!

I will report back...
