Shouldn't that be hdc1? Assuming only one partition on the drive connected as secondary master, and assuming that you are using the motherboard's IDE connectors and IDE/PATA drives or SATA drives with the necessary adapters.

You aren't trying to use the "/dos" directory as a mount point for the drive itself, you're trying to use it as a mount point for the partition on the drive, as the partion is the top-level,or 'root', directory in which the file is found.
The "-t vfat" option/switch/argument for the mount command tells it that what you want to mount uses file system type (that's the 't') vfat (virtual file allocation table), which I assume is FAT16 or FAT32 in your case.
Having told it what, you then tell it where to find it. It's not enough to tell it which drive, you have to tell it which partition on that drive, even if it's the only partition on that drive.
As for the restore command, you don't specify which partition on hdb because you aren't trying to write to a partition on it, you're trying to write partitions on it, i.e., create partitions on the raw drive.
