The slave on the primary is hdb, so I think you meant to say "hdc to
hdb" -- is that correct?

On what drive is LILO installed? What error are you getting?
If LILO is on the primary master, then make sure the boot= line still says
If LILO is installed on your Linux drive, you'll need the boot= drive to
read /dev/hdb (the destination location), but you'll need to tell LILO to
install itself on hdc, since the Linux drive is currently at hdc (I'm
assuming). Do this with the "-b" option to override the boot= line
(see man lilo). For example,
/sbin/lilo -v -b /dev/hdc
Then, when you actually move the drive to hdb, both the LILO installation
and the LILO config file will be correct.
Hope this helps,
