Anybody ever tried to restore a Solaris boot block using partimage?

It seems to work OK for backing up / restoring solaris partitons but the boot block is slightly different...

I've got a gentoo CD that I boot from which uses partimage to bacl up the Solaris partitons onto a spare partition. I can then burn these files to CD.

If I boot another machine from the same CD, I can fdisk and create the partitions (with sun label). Then partimage restores the sun partitions no problem...

Except for the boot partition !!!!

Why not use dd? Much simpler and it does what you tell it.
