I can think of two that are close to that size (and if a little over it
could probably be trimmed enough):

1. "TinyScheme" by Dimitrios Souflis (based on "MiniScheme" by Moriwaki
    and Kida). See <URL:>

2. "LispMe", by Fred Bayer. See <URL:>
   This one runs on the Palm Pilot!

Either one would probably need a bit of work to run on DOS, but they're
both pretty small...
