I have routinely done this in the past. I've had 1 PC with Suse,
Mandriva, Ubuntu and Xandros (say) all sharing the same /home
If you want to keep the accounts separate, just use different login
IDs. I used liam-ubuntu, liam-suse etc.
But you can use the same ID and keep the same desktop across them all.
This works OK, but if you mix KDE & GNOME you'll get some redundant
icons from one that don't work in the other, and occasionally, you may
have to do a text-mode login and "chown" across the folder to fix
But still, it does work.
