Default MBR and partition table backup - 02-28-2011, 09:16 AM

I wrote here a post how my partition table disappears, but it is lost somewhere.
So here is my question - how can I backup the bootloader and the partition table?
Will it be enough if I backup it to usb with
dd if=/dev/sda of=/path/to/file bs=512 count=1
and to recreate it with
dd if=/path/to/file of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1
as it could be done in linux or in the dell mini mac installations it is different.

Thank you
