Dual boot - Kali and Fedora??

I have Kali 2.0 installed on my laptop. Wanted to install Fedora to learn it. Thought maybe if I can keep kali on and just install fedora I'd get the best of both worlds.

Is it possible to setup a dual boot of kali and Fedora?
And if so, can someone point me in the right direction.

Dedicate space and create partition for Fedora.
Install Fedora there. Do not install grub bootloader during Fedora installation, just skip grub installation stage.
Once Fedora installed, boot into Kali and run update-grub command. It will add Fedora to your boot menu.
