be careful, in principle you are correct, but afaik this overwrites also the partition
table (which is located in the last ? bytes of the boot sector, but I am not really
sure about the number of bytes in the moment).
As far as I found in the hurry, you need an bs=446 in addition to your parameters,

In ETH Oberon, BootManager can be written to a disk with these commands.
Partitions.WriteMBR dev#0 BootManagerMBR.Bin ~
Partitions.FileToPartition dev#0 BootManagerTail.Bin 1 12 ~
I think of this as equivalent in Linux.
dd if=~/BootManagerMBR.Bin of=/dev/sdx count=1
dd if=~/BootManagerTail.Bin of=/dev/sdx seek=1 count=12
Thx, ... P.L.
