This program is used to create Microsoft compatible boot records.
It is able to do the same as Microsoft "fdisk /mbr" to a hard disk.
It is also able to do the same as Microsoft "sys d:" to a floppy or
FAT partition except that it does not copy any system files, only the
boot record is written.
The program is useful when using Linux to restore a backup of a
reference Microsoft Windows installation.
