Yes, but this is not a complete process of bringing up and booting a new
disk.  You've only quoted the commands that install an MBR.  You also
need to label the disk, create partitions in the label, create a file
system on those partitions and then install the boot loader on /boot of
the ad3s1a partition.

Can you show us *ALL* the steps?
