Actually, fixing the order in fdisk will exchange what is now /dev/hdc1 
(linux) and /dev/hdc2 (extended). Everything else remains in place. Could I 
assume that lilo could just as happily boot to /dev/hdc2 as it does now 
to /dev/hdc1 ?

IF so, how safe is this change to actually save, change lilo.conf and reboot?
