Strange.  I just tried (on a 2.4.2 kernel):

# dd if=/dev/hda2 bs=1 skip=44 count=128 of=/tmp/uuids
128+0 records in
128+0 records out
# dd of=/dev/hda2 bs=1 seek=44 count=128 if=/tmp/uuids
128+0 records in
128+0 records out

It worked with no problems.  Maybe there is something strange about the
version of dd that you have?  I have:

# dd --version
dd (GNU fileutils) 4.0.35

Can you try running "strace dd of=/dev/hda2 bs=1 seek=6144 if=/tmp/uuids"
and see where it gets the error from?

Cheers, Andreas
