Swap space


If I were to install Red Hat (currently I have Windows XP and Mandrake 9.1 installed) ( I want to install Red Hat along with these two) , do I need another swap space, or will Red Hat use the same swap as Mandrake? (I don't want to get rid of Mandrake)

I believe they can both use the same swap space......assuming both won't be running @ the same time. LOL
