In Linux, i-node numbers represents link to physical
locations (AFAIK). Unless you necessarily require a physical location i-node
numbers don't change or its not needed (in case of moving files inode
numbers do not change).
If u need to change a file's i-node number, trick is to copy and paste it
into the same location with a new name and remove the original file and
rename the new file back to original one.
Now check the new i-node number with the command ls -i.
