Default BootDisk with Defrag.exe on it?!

Hi, I've posted this on a few other forum sites, and yet, no one can help me....

I am in need to find a way to take a 98/98SE bootdisk and beable to add defrag.exe to it. The reason is that, if i'm out on a house call, it would make things so much easier and quicker to defrag a customers HDD rather than sit and wait for it to defrag under windows, even if I'm in safe mode, with all possible background prog's shutdown.

The 2 things I have tried was copy the the defrag.exe from windows, but it tells me that it requires windows. I also have tried copying defrag.exe from my DOS 6.22 disk 1, but it only see's the C: drive and won't run the defrag?

Anybody got any ideas?
