make sure you can boot in standalone mode...so you can fix things
if something went whacky ( it cannot boot anymore )

- yes.. change lilo.conf, fstab and  your boot floppies
	- make sure your old boot floopies still work
	- make a new (different) boot floppy ...

- you will probably want to rebuild your kernel and initrd stuff after
  you have moved things over 
	- rdev might come in handy to fix things too
