I once created a series of receiver ID's of all 1's, all 2's and all 3's 
and married a hard disk to the receiver for each ID.  When I examined 
the 2 sectors though, I did not see the receiver ID listed anywhere in 
those sectors.  Are you sure it is listed in plain sight, or is the ID 
hashed somehow and stored that way?
