dd if=/dev/hda of=bootloader.bak bs=512 count=1

The dd command will copy anything in blockwise.

man dd

for more details.

the MBR resides ion teh first 512 blocks, we can backup it with dd.

Thanks so much!!

I've screwed up my boot loader several times tinkering with stuff (I'm a noob).
This will be a great help.
