Short answer is never.

Doesn't freeDOS support USB? I know they recommend booting off a
USB drive.

There's a commercial DOS driver, DOSUSB, but it's very expensive.

I'll have to check that FreeDOS out. Unforch this old Asus board
won't boot from usb.

There is (are?) dos emulator(s?) for Linux -- do any of those support
a usb port?

No clue, thats another round tuit I've misslaid someplace. And ATM. I
have 2 milling machines broken and am having to buy a third to fix the
1st one. But the ball screw I need to fix the 2nd one seems to be made

long. :(
