Just a suggestion: there's something called "syslinux" out there that
takes care of your bootdisk without this initrd-mess. Most distributions
(including Debian) use syslinux as their bootloader.

syslinux works with DOS as well, but does not really boot (syslinux is
called from config.sys)

No idea where to get it though; maybe have a look at boot-floppies?
