[sf-lug] Multi booting

I multi-boot exclusively , so I can simply reboot into another install when something goes wrong . I still place a FAT-32 partition on hda1 / sda1 because many distributions automatically set it up to do data exchanges . I always ask for partition boot from the installer so WHEN some distro overwrites MBR. I can fix it fast or I'll just use GAG. to point at my partitions . Occasionally some distro will wipe all data from a drive when it sees a partition beyond the 15th . Occasionally some distro will wipe all data following a filesystem it doesn't know , I lost 9 installs that way once . I share swap only and often have over 9 distro available at once . GRUB remains my bootloader of choice but seems to suffer from some version incompatibilities . I need to do something about the boot sector number too high for bios on my gigabyte 780+sb700 chipset m/b problem with my 500g sata drive . Is it possible for some distributions to share /boot ?
