What Ron used was /dev/hdc, ie, the drive from the beginning, not
partition 1. The 4096 and seek=1 skips over the partition table and
puts the image into the last part of the MBR/partition table area
overlapping into partition 1. It's equivalent to seeking 8 sectors from
the beginning when viewing the disk as linear sector addressing.
I wouldn't do this sort of thing on any drive you care about, easy to
make typos and wipe out the disk (or another disk if your fingers type
/dev/hda when your brain says hdc).
