[ubuntu] Backup mbr and superblock/grub/important info

Right now I use dd to backup mbr and the first 512 bytes of every partiton.


Code:
---------
dd if=/dev/sd? of=sd?.bin bs=512 count=1
---------
That would take care of the partition tables and grub in the mbr, but what about the superblock, the stuff that XP stores and the superblock?
