For CD support you'll need mscdex.exe in autoexec.bat  and cdrom.sys in config.sys
You should also allow for a varienty of CD drives to be supported.  Recommend you look at the boot structure of something like the Win98 floppy disk image at www.bootdisk.com for an example.  You can also get the syntax from there.

USB support in native DOS wasn't available but there may be a third party fix for this by now.  Hopefully someone will post that and we can both learn from it :)

EDIT: or I could look on this site :)
