Okay, 446 + 64 adds to 510, what about the other 2 bytes?

Okay this explains all the byte usage:


Address   Description	               Size in bytes

0 	  code area 	               440 (max. 446)

440       disk signature (optional)    4

444 	  Usually nulls; 0x0000        2

446       Table of primary
          partitions [1]               64

510       55h   MBR Signature
511       AAh   0xAA55h                2

[1] Four 16-byte entries, IBM partition table scheme.
NB: this is further described at the wiki link above.
