Sure, but of course it won't work on the new hard drive, as it will probably have different size of partition or whatever, you need to change suitably the "dynamic" part, READ the post by natan on the given links, (and all the rest), the idea is to change the CODE (or "static" part) leaving UNTOUCHED the DATA (or "dynamic" part), or at least this is what you asked and what the bootsect utility actually does.
so dd if=/dev/hdb1 of=bootsect.lnx size=512 count=1 to copy
and dd whatever to write it back on a new hard drive ???

I think it's to complicated. So I tried to run bootsect using wine. the only problem is I don't know how to specify the driver letter Does wine know how to convert driver letter to something like /dev/hda??
