For boot logos?  If that's the case, then yes, you can.  Just read the
appropriate documentation of grub or lilo to figure out how to get them
to display your logo

You may want to search for floppy based Linux distributions and use them
as a guide for what you need at a minimum.  You can then add binaries
that give you "dir", "copy" and other DOS style commands.  If you can
just learn the UNIX/Linux command line tools they work at least as well
and usualy better, so you'd probably be better off just learning to use
them.  A pretty good comparison/mapping is at:

the hints section about creating a minimal Linux.

Two of the most popular command line ftp clients are ncftp (my favorite)
and lftp (others).  They are both easy and non-complicated to install
from source
