Yes I remember tools like HDcopy and probably Norton Utilities also handle floppy on it's own instead of BIOS but I don't know if they use DMA. I think it's not problem to write my own tool that will not use DMA but it's matter for compatability with old SW.

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
