Installing two distros on the same partition
 
I've been trying to achieve this goal for quite a while, and I have a way to do it using [overcomplicated] bind mounting, but it requires one distro to read one fstab, and the other to read another. If someone knows how to do this (not necessarily in the way I'm trying to do it) I would really like to know how.

Thanks

P.S. The reason for this is that I have no more primary partitions and don't feel like repartitioning, and also because this will be more convenient.

clearly this is already NOT more convenient. just use LVM or similar to allocate filesystems without needing new partitions.

I think that to use two distributions at the same time the best choice is to use Virtual machines, if you still don't know VirtualBox search for it and read about how to create virtual machines.
