Nothing is impossible. You need either a combination of
DOS+QEMM+Desqview or simply a multitasking DOS - DR DOS - .
Alternatively you could also use DOS+Windows 3.1x(for Workgroups).
These should be integrated into your LAN.
At any rate, you need a multitasking environment. Than you should setup
the FTP server - I'd suggest any brand of KA9Q - . (There is another ftp
server at Simtel, A-FTP, can run off a floppy but lacks any security system.)
I'm sure you won't find it easy, but as said above, everything is possible,
even with DOS.
