Ah, ok.

hdc1 is an extended partition, and hdc2 is a primary partition.
What you want is to "convert" hdc2 to a logical partition.
There isn't any convienient (read: no bit-bashing) way of doing
this... except perhaps trying to delete the partition, and running
gpart.  Alternatively, you could create another partition (a bigger one),
and copy hdc2 to it (via dd(1)).
