I thought I might point out that this won't work either.
Lilo will update the /dev/hda MBR which is not the drive
he wants to boot from.  It's probably easier to keep a
boot floppy around and then after swapping drives boot
from the floppy, mount the boot partition, and run the
command you gave above.

BTW I'm not inclined to be religious about computers, just
ignorant about religious wars.
