You can run some dos applications under BIBM, but it is not a complete dos implementation and some things may not work. I do not know if this answers your question, but ..You can do this.

- Install (real) dos to your system ( can be the same BIBM partition)
- Install BIBM to that same partition.
- configure BIBM to boot that same partition as DOS.

When your system is started, BIBM will be able to boot to dos via menu, as normal dos, and you will be able to invoke TBOSDT and run any .tbs script. The only thing that you can not do, without restarting your system, is to get back into any of the BIBM configuration and partitioning functions. Other functions, including booting to another BIBM menu item and be done from the dos os.
