Tutorial for what? Making sure that you can have both on your boot menu? Making sure that you use the same swap partition for both? Making sure that the cakes in the oven don't burn? What areas are you unhappy about?

Ultra simplified version:
Assuming you have one installed, and a boot loader, you'd install the other without installing a bootloader, copy your kernel information to the first distro's /boot folder add an entry into the bootloader config file, and that's it.

Now, what boot loader do you have, which distro is already installed, or which one will be installed first, and what level of knowledge do you have using linux?
