I was running a diagnostic utility from Broadcom on my network hardware and it ran in FreeDOS. I've never used this before and I am unfamiliar with it. Now I am trying to avoid hitting the power button and I would like to boot the system back up normally. How can I do this. I've tried the "exit" command and it didn't do anything.

Just remove the disk/media and power cycle the machine. There is nothing special you need to do.
