share /boot between Suse And Debian

Hi gurus.

I hv Suse Linux 9.0 running fine and honestly I am very happy with it. However I am eager to play around with Debian "woody" too. I am thinking if it is possible to share the /boot partition between both distros with respective directory to store the kernel images. If possible is this a good idea ?

Another question is both distro will automatically share the /swap partition right ?

All of that is managed in the /etc/fstab for your respective distributions - if you point them both towards the same partitions, then they'll share the space.
