Comments:

  The boot sector and the master boot record (MBR) are very important
  parts of the FAT filesystem. They are created by fdisk and sys. 
  If something is wrong with the boot sector, the whole partition
  cannot be read. If something is wrong with the master boot record
  the OS (FreeDOS) cannot boot at all.
