when install additional distros, can they all share same parition? (other then root)
hi, i'm getting ready to install Gentoo on my box. i already have mdk 9.2 and slackware 9.1. I think it would be waste of space if i setup some new paritions again.
on top of it, i'm just trying to get a feel of the diff distro, in fact...mdk is still my main OS in my box (probably because i'm too lazy to mess with slack :P )
so here's what i'm thinking:
can i do something like --- 3 /, 1 for mdk, 1 for slack, 1 for gentoo
then they all share /home , /opt, /swap, etc
that way, its not only save spaces, i can also access to the same application/file/programs regardness which distro i'm in.
can that be done? if so what else i need to watch out for?
if not, got other suggestions to offer???
