restore boot block



Currently, we automate the installation of hundreds of machines by wiping
the bootblock (first 512 bytes of the disk) to force them to do PXE boot on
bootup.  However, because parts of the partition table reside in this
location as well, wiping the 512 bytes of the disk makes the partition table
unreadable.  Once anaconda takes over (no longer booting), does anyone know
how one could restore the partition table.  What would be the best approach
to recreate the partition table?
