1. HELP - Trashed boot sector, 3.2v4

OK, I hear you, but...

I just did this last night while moving from one disk to another
and dd'ed 512 bytes into the new block. and my partition
table as reported by fdisk _is_ correct.

I dd'ed from my Emergency boot disks, which were made from
a disk with a different table that I now have on the new disk.

I won't dissagree with you, but then why is this system working
right now as I type?  I'm confused.
