Multiple linux-distributions, risk for interferences?

If you have several different linux-distributions installed on an computer, could there be a risk they begin to interfere with each other?
Before installing them, is there something you have to take into consideration.
The partitioning scheme for all of them (4) would be like this:
and the rest inclusive swap in LVM.

They will be installed on two 160GB harddisks giving them a space of 80GB each.

You should not run into conflicts with major distros - just make sure they all have their own partitions. You may want to use a boot partition as well.

I have several installed and they don't interfere with each other. They all use seperate partitions but share the same swap partition.
