Why cann't you use LILO with /dev/hdc? The boot code of LILO installs
on the MBR of /dev/hda, and unless you need to load some software to
access the secondary IDE controler, it should be able to load the kernel
from /dev/hdc and use it as the root device with no problems...

If by copy, you are planing on changing the drive with Linux on it from
being master on the secondary IDE to slave on the primary, the only file
you should have to change is the /etc/fstab file. Change all the
references to hdc to read hdb and you should be all set. Then make sure
you run LILO from Linux as root so LILO know the location of your kernel.
