disk partition probs - FC2 install



I have a disk with the partitions out of order. i.e. hda5 is before hda4. Is this a problem? Is it possible to change the order?

FC2 fails to install, complaining about corrupt partition table. Windows works but the disk manager seems confused.

Is this anything to do with the geometry bug in the installer?

fdisk reports the following (from FC1 running off another disk):

[root moe root]# fdisk -l /dev/hda
omitting empty partition (5)

Disk /dev/hda: 60.0 GB, 60022480896 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7297 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

  Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1             1         6     48163+  83  Linux
/dev/hda2   *         7       261   2048287+   6  FAT16

/dev/hda5           262      2301  16386237   83  Linux
/dev/hda6          2812      2909    787153+  82  Linux swap
/dev/hda7          2910      6734  30724281    c  Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda8          6735      7296   4514233+   b  Win95 FAT32

Should I repartition and start again?

Thanks,
Matt.
