HI all,
I'd to know if it is possible mount an iso image file from network share in DOS mode.

Like a multiboot menu with bcdw, but from a mapped drive.

Do you mean booting normally from a local DOS boot disk, then mount a .iso image residing on a network share?

Or do you mean (PXE) booting from an .iso on a network sever?

For the first one, all you need is (besides normal network access and mapping) shsucd:

For the second one, you should have a look at pxelinux/isolinux/memdisk:

though I think that probably you will need separate boot floppy images, rather than accessing a whole CD-ROM image.

On the other hand, if you want to boot dos from a local .iso file, you can have a go with isoemu/avlgomgr:
