Those are obviously two different problems, besides, Haiku does not have a loop device.

If you could provide a link to the freedos image, someone might have a look at it why it's not correctly identified.

Does "mountvolume freedos-c.img" fail as well?

Image is available here: mountvolume works, which is the suitable replacement for the Linux-specific "-o loop,offset" hack. Closing ticket.
