So far first DD command worked successfully! Even though I could have sworn in all the previous times I had tried doing this, I did infact have the exact number of cylinders for both partitions. Either way I'm happy the first one worked and that makes me feel like the second one is going to work as well!

Oh and I noticed that you had a little typo in your last post where you were giving me the commands, you said "...of=/sdb1" and "of=/sdb2" instead of putting the /dev/ in there. I'm assuming it would shoot back an error at you if you excluded the /dev/ just thought I'd let you know of the minor typo.
