Should MBR be replaced?

I have two identical drives, both with XP on them. Both are formatted with only one partition.

I made an image of drive 1 and in the proces of ghosting it onto disk 2. I also saved a copy of drive 1's MBR. Do I need to ghost the MBR onto Disk 2?

If yes, do I do this before ghosting the partition? Am I wrong to assume that ghosting the partition does not transfer the MBR?
