multiple distros sharing directories

I'm building a test/development machine at the moment and I want to install multiple distributions on it. What directories can be shared between distros? I imagine /usr is one, but what others and what sizes should I be going for. Obviously I want each distro to retain it's 'personality' whether bad or good.
I'll be going for Debian 3.0r2, RedHat 9 and SuSE 8.2

I wouldn't share /usr as it contains program files. I would sick to swap, /home and perhaps /boot
