What are your goals, other than (apparently) running on DOS?

By the way, do you really mean DOS, as in MS-DOS or PC-DOS or something
*without* Windows running on top, or do you just mean in a DOS window
of one of Microsoft's operating systems?

If the former, how do you plan to get Python running?  Once you do, are
you sure either of the above will work on it?  They might require modules
that are not available to you on DOS.
