5 I'm about to start using only runs on SUSE. To this end, I'm about to set
6 aside a smaller partition and install the minimal amnount of SUSE I need to
7 run the app. My question is regarding /home and swap. Is there anything in
8 my current Gentoo /home and swap that "locks" them to the Gentoo install or
9 can I share them between the two installs? What I mean by share is that
10 when I boot up Gentoo can I mount /home and swap and everything is fully
11 accessible and then reboot into SUSE and once again mount them and
12 everything is once again fully accessible?
