Linux: Primary partitions?

I have to change a logical partition in a primary partition. How can i do this? This is how my partition table looks like:

"If you're going to backup you can

delete the logical OSX partition,
move the Linux and swap partition forward,
decrease the size of the logical partition,
create a primary partition for OSX at the end of the disk,
restore the backup of the OSX partition into the new OSX partition

This will get you a primary OSX partition. I'm not familiar with the OS so maybe adjustments to its equivalent of a boot manager and /etc/fstab have to be made in order to reflect the new partition numbers.

To keep your Linux system running, you may also have to account for the changed partition numbers of the Linux and swap partition."
