This should work if the partition isn't an extended one (or 'logical
drive'). Otherwise, you either need a different bootloader, or
frob some diskblocks 'by hand'. You can actually put some bootcode
in the first block of an extended partition to make it work, but
I don't recommend that if you haven't done that sort of thing
