In real DOS, sys files are usually loaded by a DEVICE or DEVICEHIGH line in config.sys such as
DEVICE=something.sys

If by "register" you mean to add such a line so that they will get loaded next boot, a simple "echo DEVICE=c:\something.sys >> c:\config.sys" should do the trick

Sorry but I have no clue how Installshield and MS DOS could have anything at all to do with each other. If you mean command prompt in Windows, that's quite different from MS DOS. Especially in new 64-bit versions of windows I don't think it even supports traditional sys files any more.

You just need to use Regsvr32, so have install-shield call it, or run a batch script as part of your installation

Syntax is simple:

Regsvr32 /S "C:\Path\To\DLL\DLL-Name.dll"

If you need to pass the DLL commands when you register it you need to use the /i option so:

Regsvr32 /S /I:[Command Line Options] "C:\Path\To\DLL\DLL-Name.dll"
