That's not a problem now? For example the Nitros9 EOU beta 5 image boots 
direct from a 'hard drive' that includes every program ever 
recorded(ish), and can handle a second data drive image, and autodetect 
two physical floppies for 4 drives online.

To avoid setting up drive assignments each startup, put a text file 
'STARTUP.CFG' on the sd card with two lines:

0=name of Nos9 Boot hard drive image
1=optional data drive image

or literally


You still have to type DOS but that sanity check might be handy
