Two distros sharing partitions?

I plan to install SLES and Slackware in a single drive. i would also like to install the following Softwares (Apache, MySQL, PHP) is it possible that 2 distros can share the same application? is it even feasible to make a LAMP installation that has 2 linux distros and only 1 instance of Apache MySQL and PHP. i hope im making sense here... not really good when it comes to shell so any code snippet or clues as to where i could possibly dig up the necessary configuration files would be highly appreciated.

i chose both because Suse has a very user friendly interface and i would like to practice controling linux using CLI. there is also a probability that any of the distros will be reinstalled at a given time without harming the other one so i believe that it is really a necessity to separate the partitions that are common to both.

If you do a full install of Slackware, you'll get Apache, MySQL, and PHP. Don't think the 2 distros sharing the same application is possible. And you can practice using the CLI with any distro.

I've split your hi-jack attempt and the response out
into a thread of its own.
